Course Description and Target Audience

A supervisor-supervisee relationship is uniquely different from the therapeutic relationship formed with clients and also similar to the client-therapist relationship, in order for growth to occur an alliance must exist. This course will offer an overview of the best practices and guidelines when providing therapeutic supervision. The process of supervision, issues of diversity, ethical dilemmas, and current theoretical models will also be explained.

The target audience is mental health providers (advanced doctoral level psychology trainees, psychologists in practice, master’s level clinicians etc).

Learning Objectives

  • Provide a basic foundational understanding of the clinical supervision process to allow participants to demonstrate best practice guidelines.
  • Critique one’s decision-making process with regard to supervisor-supervisee issues that may arise and provide appropriate evaluation methods.
  • Describe the role of difference and diversity within the supervisory relationship and how to foster attention to these in the supervisee.
  • Explain several theoretical models as related to the supervision process and how these can be applied in the supervisory relationship.
