The hard part of having interns and supervisees in your practice isn’t finding them or having them see clients. The hard part is understanding the ethical issues that arise in the day-to-day practice of having interns in your practice. This course is specifically designed to help supervisors and practice owners who are thinking about having interns and supervisees in their practice consider and manage our ethical responsibilities to interns, supervisees, and the public.
This course brings specificity and practicality to our general knowledge of ethics in how we apply it to our current policies and procedures when adding interns and supervisees to the practice.
Participants will have specific language ready to add to their existing policies and examples of policies that apply these principles ready to customize to their practice after attending the training. Participants will have the opportunity to wrestle with the ethics surrounding how we support the next generation of therapists, plan on how to problem-solve ethical issues that arise from having interns and supervisees in the practice, and construct some of their own policies based on these new learnings.
For supervisors and practice owners, there is never enough time to navigate these issues on one’s own, let alone research and develop the policy!
This training gives you a specific strategy to ethically host interns and supervisees in your practice and ways to implement policy and procedure changes directly after completion.
This workshop is for supervisors or those considering becoming supervisors.
This is a non-interactive, self-study course.
Instruction consists of 1.5 hours of video instruction and a post-test.
From the time of registration, you have six months to access the coursework.
Upon completion of this training, professionals will be able to do the following:
- List 4 Ethical Codes and Considerations when introducing interns and supervisees into their practice.
- Construct policies to address the Ethical issues discussed in this training.
- Evaluate further ethical issues that will arise while having interns and supervisees in their practice.
