Clinical Supervision: Proven Tools &
Techniques for Success
This workshop is designed to teach you how to think like a supervisor, how to
use your clinical skills to challenge and support staff while ensuring quality
control. Through role–plays, demonstrations, videos, lecture, and examples, you
will learn how to avoid the most common mistakes, deal with the anxious student
and the empowered seasoned clinician, and learn the ins and outs of group
supervision. You will transform your existing supervisor skill set and set
yourself apart from other supervisors by attending this workshop!
You will take away essential components of clinical supervision leadership
styles and time management, use of parallel process and groups, ethics and
accountability. At the core we'll walk through the developmental stages of
clinical development so you can anticipate and address the challenges and
dangers ahead as staff hone their skills.
In an engaging and interactive format (and a touch of humor), you'll learn clear
strategies and specific techniques for being the best supervisor you can be!

supervisors, or wanting to gain a fresh perspective, this program will leave you
feeling creative and energized.
