Clinical Supervision: Overview of Clinical Supervision

Clinical Supervision: Overview of Clinical Supervision 

Clinical supervision can be a challenging yet rewarding process for all individuals involved. It takes a great deal of flexibility and a clear understanding about how to guide the supervisee and structure the supervision process. In this course, you will be presented with information to improve your knowledge about important components of supervision and focus on issues that are often difficulties within the supervisory relationship. This course begins with an overview of supervision by providing information about training, supervisor responsibilities, and documentation requirements. You will learn about the supervisory process with discussion about how to structure the supervisory relationship and sessions. You will learn about ethical dilemmas and issues that can arise and focus on assessment and reporting of risk management issues frequently encountered in therapy. Lastly, you will learn about ways to deal with challenges that arise during supervision and identify ways to become a stronger supervisor. This course is intended for licensed clinical supervisors who want to gain a more in-depth understanding about how to better work in the supervisory relationship and avoid pitfalls that can occur in the supervisory process. You will be provided with case examples, vignettes, and quizzes throughout the course to apply information and test your knowledge.
