Clinical supervision is an increasingly important area in mental health,
medicine and the helping professions in general. Formal professional classroom
instruction in mental health and social services is typically followed by
mandatory hours or even years of supervised clinical placements and, in some
cases, even post licensure. It is typically under the tutelage and supervision
of an experienced practitioner that professionals, regardless of their
discipline, learn the skills necessary to become competent, ethical and
effective members of the helping professions.
"Clinical Supervision" will attempt to identify and review many of the common
problems and challenges of clinical supervision that occur in mental health and
social service settings. Ethical, legal and risk-management issues will be
identified and reviewed, along with potential solutions. The roles and
responsibilities of the supervisor and supervisee will be examined and
techniques to define goals and objectives of supervision reviewed. Common
difficulties and specific problem situations that may occur in supervision are
reviewed and discussed.
This seminar will also assist in making distinctions between administrative and
clinical supervision, areas of potential overlap or conflict, and potential
difficulties with boundary issues. Specific supervisor competencies and the
qualities and characteristics of effective supervisors will be reviewed. At the
end of the day, participants will be given the opportunity to review several
case studies and develop sample supervisory plans. This course is a must for any
mental health and social service professional with staff reporting to them.
