The Foundations of Clinical Supervision Certificate is designed for new supervisors or individuals who are considering becoming a supervisor. This program offers an introduction to a conceptual framework for supervision, along with careful application of these ideas to real world situations and concrete tools for supervisory practice. The course draws on concepts from multiple theoretical perspectives: psychodynamic, attachment, trauma and adult learning theories, always synthesizing perspectives on cultural awareness and the impact of oppression.
Attendees will learn from a diverse team of advanced practitioners. The program meets every week on Thursdays and provides 25 hours of instruction. Each 2.5 hour live, interactive webinar will include a didactic presentation and large group discussion, as well as work in small groups to build a repertoire of supervisory skills and interventions. In addition, the course will provide beginning supervisors with a continuous learning community for consultation, collaboration and collegial support.
The Foundations of Clinical Supervision Certificate is designed to help clinicians:
- Apply central concepts from psychodynamic, attachment, and learning theory as these influence the supervisory relationship
- Recognize the value of the perspective of cultural humility in supervision
- Identify some effective tools to support the supervisee’s learning and development
- Consider the importance of ethical and organizational dimensions of supervision
The program meets utilizing the Zoom platform every week on Thursdays from 1-3:45 p.m. ET.
