About the Event
Pamela Parkinson, LCSW, Ph.D.
If you are a supervisor and are supervising unlicensed support providers who are working with system-involved youth and their families, this is an important training for you. We will focus on issues of culture in supervision and also on ethical boundaries in supervision and how this parallels boundaries that support providers need to establish and maintain their 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 in order to stay focused on, and most effectively address, the needs of system-involved youth and their families.
· 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 their support of system-involved youth.
· Explain 1 reason why it is important to discuss culture in supervision in a sensitive and meaningful manner.
