Being a supervisor is difficult - you are responsible for quality control, skill training, shaping a creative staff, providing sound treatment, and supporting and advocating for staff while also serving as a voice of management. Making it all the more difficult is the fact that most supervisors assume their jobs with little supervisory training and often with just a few years of job experience.

The purpose of this program is to provide a comprehensive and dynamic understanding of the supervisory process. Numerous aspects involved in the supervisory process will be explored in-depth as they pertain to the supervisor and the supervisee.

This program will teach you to recognize the four stages of professional development. By understanding them, you will be able to anticipate the challenges and needs of your supervisees so that the supervision can change as the clinician naturally grows and changes. In addition, through lecture, case examples and experiential exercises you will learn about the practical aspects of the work - how to resolve conflicts, avoid liability, create good staff morale, and hire and fire. You will become familiar with group supervision, evaluations, the challenges of being a new supervisor and, most importantly, how to be a more creative supervisor so your staff can become more effective.
