Registrants receive unlimited access to the recording for 365 days.
When you are on the front lines, you know the importance of good supervision. The support, interest, and sensitive feedback from a good supervisor are crucial to advancing skills, as well as ensuring that future clients are getting the best possible clinical results in an ethical and safe environment.
A skilled and competent clinical supervisor draws from the “playbook” of good counselling and listening skills but knows that supervision is not the same as therapy. Rather, clinical supervision is an undertaking that requires a new set of behaviours and skills.
The supervisory process itself and the promotion of mastery is both the art and science of clinical supervision practice. Supervisors are not born. They are trained.
Over two days, Lois Ehrmann will provide you with an informed approach to risk and liability, as well as nuanced explorations of supervisor-supervisee dynamics. You will learn about how to give feedback, the pros, and cons of different observation methods, how to better relate to supervisees whose background differs from yours, how to maintain proper boundaries, how to avoid being put on a pedestal, and more.
Through presentation, active discussion, and small-group problem solving, this workshop is designed to help you build your confidence in your supervision skills by providing instruction on how to address competently and confidently the toughest issues you will face in today’s ever-evolving psychotherapeutic world.
Time for reflection and small-group discussion will empower you with ideas and actual tools that you can integrate into your practice as soon as the training is over!
