About the Event
Pamela Parkinson, Ph.D., LCSW and Annya Shapiro, LMFT
If you are a supervisor and are supervising those who support system-involved youth and their families, this is an important training for you. We will focus on issues of culture in supervision and on ethical boundaries in supervision. We will show how the boundaries of supervision parallel the boundaries that support establishing and maintaining relationships with system-involved youth and their families. We will also review the relevance of countertransference in the supervisory relationship and how to help supervisees identify this to stay focused on, and most effectively address, the needs of system-involved youth and their families.
Participants will be able to:
· Explain at least 2 basic requirements of supervisors;
· Build at least 2 skills to help supervisors learn from supervisee feedback and improve relationships while maximizing support of system-involved youth.
· Explain 1 reason why it is important to discuss culture in supervision in a sensitive and meaningful manner.
