Clinical Supervision: Being the Best Supervisor that You Can Be!
Time & Location
About the Event
Pamela Parkinson, Ph.D., LCSW
If you are a clinical supervisor and are supervising unlicensed clinicians, working with youth and their families in our continuum of care, who are accumulating their hours towards licensure, this is an important training for you. We will focus on some of the requirements of the BBS and on issues of culture in supervision and on ethical boundaries in supervision and how these parallels boundaries in the supervisee/client relationship. We will also review the relevance of countertransference in the supervisory relationship and how to help supervisees identify this.
• Learn the basic BBS requirements of supervisors regarding associate clinicians.
• Practice how to learn from your supervisee’s feedback how to improve your relationship while maximizing their support of their clients.
• Explore culture in supervision and the importance of how to bring this into the relationship in a sensitive and meaningful manner.
