Psychotherapy Supervision: Old Controversies and New Dilemmas

2 CEs available

Free for Marin CAMFT members and reciprocal chapter members!

Workshop Description

National organizations of psychiatrists, psychologists, counselors, and social workers have recently advocated specific courses in supervision for trainees their respective clinical disciplines. They have tended to frame supervision in terms of specific competencies or progressive skill sets, often measured via symptom reduction in the supervisee’s clients. They have also emphasized the importance of adapting supervision, like treatment, to areas of diversity. But there has been less attention to general developmental goals such as the supervisee’s overall professional and personal growth, and to areas of maturation that constitute progress in both therapist and patient. This talk contextualizes clinical supervision historically, exploring some less frequently measured areas of supervisory competence. It aims to be relevant to the practical and professional needs of both supervisors and supervisees.

Educational Goals

This program is intended to acquaint participants with the long history of clinical discussions about supervision and the shorter history of empirical research on the topic. It is expected to increase supervisors’ overall competence in helping newer colleagues to mature as professionals. It is also intended to maximize the positive use of supervision by therapists who seek or are required to have such mentoring.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this workshop, participants should be able to:

  1. Articulate three tensions or controversies that recur periodically in professional writing about clinical supervision;

  2. Describe ten areas of overall mental health relevant to supervision;

  3. Define two ways of dealing with the possible implications of differences between supervisor and supervisee in areas such as culture, ethnicity, race, age, gender and gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, class, ability, and similar potential diversities;

  4. Identify two practical implications of recent research on supervision;
  5. Increase the mutual comfort and effectiveness of any supervisory or consultation situation in which they find themselves.
