Integrative Seminar II

In-person Seminar 
Instructor: Katherine Jungreis, Ph.D., LCSW (Group A) and Nichole Wofford, Ph.D., LICSW, LMFT  (Group B)
Level: Intermediate
Target Audience: Social workers and other social service providers who are currently providing clinical supervision and have supervised for at least three years.
Course Delivery Method, Format and Instructor Interaction: Live in-person seminar.

The integrative seminar provides an opportunity for participants to use concepts and language from the morning didactic sessions to explore their own supervisory experience. Participants’ supervisory cases, presented in written form, provide the content to be studied in the afternoon practicum. Class process includes a careful reading of case materials and their accompanying process recordings, attention to questions raised by the presenter and other participants, surfacing and clarification of themes and learning issues. Through engaged class discussion a more grounded, visceral understanding of the complex concepts introduced in the morning sessions and their utility in actual supervisory practice emerges.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Articulate challenges and problems that arise in participant’s practice of supervision, using course concepts
  2. Describe participants differential use of self in supervisory relationships
  3. Explain the impact of context on participant’s supervisory practice
  4. Describe how to respond to learning issues which emerge with supervisees
  5. Define parallel process and explore its use in supervisory practice
  6. Identify the impact of difference, boundaries, and power on participant’s supervisory practice


Outline by session – 2 hours per day with a 10 minute break.

Because the content of each session is determined by participant’s cases it is not possible to specify what material will be covered in each session until these cases have been received and reviewed. There will be a 10 minute break in the middle. Cases will be assigned, one or two per class, based on their relationship to one another and the content of the morning sessions. The case schedule will be presented at the first class. The case schedule will be presented at the first class. The case assignment for the first class will be available on Moodle to participants to allow them to prepare for the first session.
