This course is for professionals considering providing counseling clinical supervision and those who have been practicing as a clinical supervisor who wish to enrich and refresh their supervisory knowledge. The professional development involved in being an effective supervisor is similar to the process of developing as a counselor. It is essential for supervisors to have a clear understanding of various supervision models in order to be confident in how they conduct supervision by actively choosing which model(s) to utilize in order to best serve the professional development of supervisees. Just as it is essential in clinical work with clients to have a clear understanding of theoretical orientation, in supervision it is equally important for supervisors to have a firm foundation as to which supervision models they are operating from and why.
This course provides a deep dive into clinical supervision theories and models in ways supervisors can best meet the needs of supervisees and align their supervision services with supervisors’ chosen clinical theoretical orientation(s). Participants will be provided an opportunity to apply what is learned during the course about various models to fictional supervision scenarios.
This workshop is for supervisors or those considering becoming supervisors.
This is a non-interactive, self-study course.
Instruction consists of 6 hours of video instruction and a post-test.
