The Nuts and Bolts of Clinical Supervision in Groups
Join us for a Live Webinar on June 9, 2023 from 10am-5pm Eastern
6 CE Credits available for behavioral health clinicians
Most clinicians think about individual supervision when thinking of clinical supervision. However, much supervision also occurs in a group format, including university training programs and agency settings. Research has shown that group supervision appears to be equally effective to individual supervision in terms of training outcomes. In this course, new and experienced supervisors will learn more about the advantages and limitations of group supervision, the models and stages of group supervision, and some specific group supervision techniques that can be used in live or virtual settings.
Participants in this course should expect to leave with a solid understanding of the advantages and challenges of providing clinical supervision in a group setting. They will review the stages of groups and the core group processes that occur within clinical supervision groups. Presenters will provide an understanding of the importance of addressing power and culture within group supervision. Finally, participants will learn various tools, techniques, and models for group supervision.
This workshop is for clinical supervisors and those considering the practice of supervision.
- Discuss the stages of group and core group processes and how these apply to clinical supervision in groups.
- Analyze the power dynamics and cultural considerations that are present in clinical supervision in groups.
- Identify specific models and techniques that can be used in clinical supervision in groups.
- Develop skills to balance the needs of individual supervisees with the needs of the supervision group.
This course is being offered to Clinical Supervisors, but is not included in registration for the Clinical Supervision Forum. Registration for "The Nuts and Bolts of Clinical Supervision in Groups" must be made separately from those enrolling in the Clinical Supervision Forum.
