Since clinical supervision was identified as a distinct
professional competency requiring specific training and experience, focus has
been on scholarship and training to enhance professional competency of both
supervisors and supervisors-in-training in the pipeline. Task forces have been
assembled to address requisite competencies and guidelines for supervision
practice. However, the research shows that training and competence in clinical
supervision still lag behind as there is inadequate recognition of the
substantial changes. This workshop is designed to provide a comprehensive
state-of-the-art approach with particular attention placed on evolving best
practices. Frameworks for individual supervisors to implement multiple aspects
of competency-based supervision in their local setting will be provided. The
theoretical framework is competency-based in approach and integrates
evidence-based, developmental, strength-based, process, and multi-cultural
perspectives. Clear guidelines are discussed with respect to legal and ethical
issues and to address supervisee performance that does not meet competency
The training is organized around a series of interactive
exercises, video segments, and activities to ensure active learning and
participation. The program will satisfy the Board of Psychology’s requirement
for supervisors to receive six hours of continuing education in supervision.
