Course Title: It’s Complicated: Special Considerations for Supervising Clinicians Treating Eating Disorders
Eating disorders are complex disorders that affect nearly all domains of functioning and pose an increased risk for serious medical complications and suicide. Standard treatment plans for eating disorders include a combination of psychotherapy, medical care and monitoring, nutritional counseling, and psychotropic medications -- resulting in the necessity for clinicians to possess a high level of specialized and cross-disciplinary knowledge. As such, these complex disorders require additional considerations when it comes to providing clinical supervision and consultation. This webinar will examine the ethical and practical considerations for supervising clinicians treating eating disorders including how to assess client risk and level of care appropriateness, how to assess clinician competency, and how to access the training resources necessary to provide ethical and effective care.
- Describe at least two ethical challenges that can arise in the treatment of eating disorders.
- Describe how to apply at least two elements of the Competency-Based Supervision model when supervising therapists treating eating disorders.

Course Title: How Clinical Supervisors Can Adjust Their Evaluative Lens by Understanding the “Zone of Proximal Development”
The purpose of this course is to provide insights into counselor and supervisor development. It will explain the “zone of proximal development,” and how it can be applied to understanding the development of counseling supervisors, in addition to beginning and middle stage counselors. It will explore how development changes for counselors during their internship to their post graduate work toward licensure. This course will also address the necessary adjustments for clinical supervisors along that development process.
- Explain the impact that the zone of proximal development has on the skill set of clinical supervisors and counselors.
- Describe how the zone of proximal development can be utilized to better understand the relationships between the supervisor and supervisee.

Date: Friday, September 16, 2022 - 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm EST
Course Title: Documentation for Supervisors
Documentation is often overlooked in supervision because we dread it. It is frustrating and time consuming to translate the great work we do (talking, connecting, and sharing) into written form, after it has occurred, both clinically and in supervision. As supervisors, we are responsible for every aspect of clinical service our supervisees provide. Documentation is an important way to monitor their work with clients and help ensure quality care, competence, compliance with guidelines and timely payment. With practical tips and reminders, this course will provide discussion of the importance of documentation, suggestions for enhanced content, and what to document for supervision itself to simplify the documentation process.
- Describe the value of documentation in supporting our work in monitoring professional services.
- Identify several tips for enhanced, best practice content.
- Define key components of maintaining a supervisee file and suggestions for quality supervision notes

- Describe ethical dilemmas that impact supervision needs in community mental health and private practice settings.
- Identify the roles of a supervisor supporting growth in their supervisee.
- Enhance supervision skills for use in your practice, organization, or agency.
- Compare popular supervision models for adoption within their practice, organization, or agency
