About the Event
Pamela Parkinson, Ph.D., LCSW
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 in 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.
· Learn the basic requirements of supervisors
· Practice how to learn from your supervisee’s feedback how to improve your relationship while maximizing their support of their system-involved clients.
· Explore culture in supervision and the importance of how to bring this into the relationship in a sensitive and meaningful manner so that supervisees can replicate this with system involved youth that they support.
