What is mental health supervision? How do supervisees learn? What are the behaviors of an effective supervisor? What are the traditional and non-traditional models of supervision? These are a few of the questions we will explore in “Principles of Clinical Supervision.”

This program is designed stimulate your exploration into your individual supervision process and to offer new perspectives that can assist in organizing and enhancing your supervisory skills. Much of the program will address the behaviors of supervisors and supervisees.

Topics will include common and uncommon models of supervision including the application of a theoretical orientation to the supervision process. You will examine multiple supervisory interventions such as targeting client interventions versus supervisee reactions to clients and supervision and explore tips for addressing supervisee reactions to clients, the clinical relationship, and the supervisory relationship.
