They will also learn how to teach supervisees to integrate theory in their intervention planning and implementation.
At the end of this program, participants will be able to:
- Identify and address difficult problems in supervision in both social service and mental health settings;
- Address and prevent vicarious traumatization in both the supervisee and the supervisor working with system involved youth;
- Integrate a theoretic understanding of cases in their discussion of case formulation and treatment planning;
