A Primer on Clinical Supervision for Counsellors and Psychotherapists

Enhancing Professional Development of New Colleagues via Establishment of a Framework for Informed Supervision

September 15, 2021 via Zoom

This one-day introductory workshop is designed to offer a conceptual framework for best-practice clinical supervision. Target participants are those who are interested in contributing in a supervisory capacity to the professional preparation of pre-service students (who are engaged in practicum and/or internship as components of formal study) and/or the continued professional growth of in-service professionals (who may be seeking professional registration/licensure). Employing a combination of didactic and interactive components, the workshop provides broad brushstrokes of the concepts and considerations salient to the practice of clinical supervision. The workshop content is based on the premise that before we may profitably seek answers, we need to know which questions to ask.

Registration NOW CLOSED.
