Wednesday, December 7, 2016 @ 3-4:00pm ET (2CT/1MT/12PT)
This workshop explores some of the challenges that prevent many clinical supervisors from providing quality supervision and how the supervisor, as a role model, can effectively face these challenges to maximize the effectiveness of supervision. Included is a discussion on fostering an effective learning environment while forming collaborative alliances in a strength-based approach to supervision. The supervisor’s role in modeling and monitoring counselor ethics is also explored. Included in the webinar is an overview of the importance of direct observation along with the various means of gathering information about supervisees’ clinical work. Finally, formative and summative evaluations will be discussed along with three formative approaches known as feed up, feed forward and feedback. These approaches are presented as important components of eliciting career development plans from supervisees.
- The participants will explore the scope of clinical supervision including roles, definitions, and one’s own experience as a supervisee.
- The participants will be able to define ethical and legal issues in clinical supervision including obligations, modeling and decision-making.
- The participant will be able to explain the rationale and benefits of implementing direct observation as a supervisory method.
- The participant will explore formative and summative feedback and their role in eliciting career development plans from supervisees.
