Description

Are you considering joining the ranks of those who are approved to provide this invaluable oversight of fellow professionals? Are you already a clinical supervisor and need to formalize and enhance your knowledge and skills? This recording presents a blueprint, based on established best practices, for providing effective and ethical clinical supervision.

Explore clinical supervision through the lens of critical legal, ethical, and risk management issues. Gain clarity on how to define the goals of supervision, as well as the responsibilities of both supervisor and supervisee. Analyze the “How Do I?” of clinical supervision, with details on individual vs. group supervision, case consultation, interactive live supervision, audio and video sessions, and other methods and techniques. Determine how to meet, and then exceed, your obligations regarding competence, confidentiality, vicarious liability, and other standards.
