Theory and practice of clinical supervision through instruction and a supervision practicum in the clinical facilities.
The purpose of this seminar is to teach beginning supervisory skills through didactic and experiential components. The didactic component will review the theories, research and practice of supervision as well ethics and multicultural issues related to supervision. Objectives are to: • Familiarize you with the professional literature relevant to supervision theory, research, and practice • Initiate skill development in clinical supervision and examine your own development as a supervisor • Familiarize you with the methods and issues of clinical supervision • Help you conceptualize your own theory of supervision The experiential component will allow students to develop the skills to perform basic supervision of clinical cases through supervision of one or more therapy cases with a second year student. Objectives include: • Being able to develop a foundation for supervision, practice different methods of supervision, and put didactic information into practice • Developing the ability to organize and conduct individual supervision sessions effectively and within the context of an existing theory of supervision • Developing effective working relationships with both supervisees and faculty supervisors • Providing constructive informal and formal oral and written feedback to supervisees • Helping supervisees understand the therapy process, including how it works, how to help their clients, how to evaluate the effects of their helping efforts, and how to enhance their competencies • Helping supervisees plan and execute constructive plans of action to develop their skills and to address client concerns • Demonstrate their knowledge of legal and ethical codes that govern the issues presented by practicum supervision • Use appropriate ethical and risk-management procedures • Share information about their supervision relationships that provides evidence of their grasp of presenting problems, client needs and goals, therapy and supervision skills required, and prognoses • Critique recordings of their own supervision sessions constructively, demonstrating accurate self-evaluation and an understanding of the criteria they should use in evaluating their work
