Course Objectives:

  • Did the instructor address the different styles of supervision?

  • Did the instructor review requirements to supervise practicum and interns?
  • Did the instructor address the professional and ethical responsibilities of the supervisor? 

Course Description:

         Clinical supervision is one of the most important areas of psychotherapy training. Some view it as the principal method for preparing counselors-in-training for psychotherapeutic practice. However, until recently little focus had been given to skills and qualifications needed to be an effective supervisor. The goals of the course are four fold: to understand developmental needs of supervisee, gain exposure to differing supervisory styles, gain insight into one's supervisory style, and receive overview of regulations and ethical standards for supervision. Theoretical and applied aspects of supervision will be explored. Any recent requirement changes will also be discussed.  Through case studies, discussion, peer supervision and research, participants will have an opportunity to explore relevant issues and effective supervisory styles. Participants are encouraged to bring in cases for discussion.
