Clinical supervision provides the most important resource available for training and oversight of evidence-based practices. This webinar will highlight concrete steps to take in implementing quality supervision with a Motivational Interviewing focus, enhancing client outcome and employee satisfaction. In the ‘Blended Model of Supervision,’ Dr. David Powell highlighted the Parallel Process effect, which suggests that if you are not demonstrating the skills in supervision, your supervisees are less likely to use them with clients. This informative webinar will help you map out your journey towards this EBP proficiency.

Learning Objectives
  • Define the basic skills and techniques of motivational interviewing-based supervision.
  • Defend the rationale for clinician/client audio recording.
  • Articulate an understanding of the utility of the MITI coding system as a supervisory tool.
