Foundations of Supervision: Preparing for Effective Supervision
Oftentimes supervision is a role we are placed in because of our job duties and/or because we think this is the next step toward success in our career path. A good clinician does not necessarily mean a skilled supervisor. Supervision is a distinct area of practice that requires preparation, knowledge, and competence, and involves new skills, responsibilities, roles, and procedures. This workshop provides a foundational understanding of supervision through the discussion of those requirements and practical suggestions for initial structure, process, and the supervisory relationship.
This workshop is for supervisors or those considering becoming supervisors.
From the time of registration, you have six months to access the coursework.
Upon completion of this training, professionals will be able to do the following:
- Define supervision as a distinct area of practice
- Explain the general goal of supervision, the necessary supervisor knowledge, skill, or competency, and describe the supervisor's role or function and the administrative responsibilities
- Identify the considerations for the structure of supervision
- Express the key elements of the supervisory relationship and the importance of the supervisory relationship
