Supervision: Crafting Successful Group Supervision AND Overcoming Games Played in Supervision

Virtual Training Class!

During this highly interactive seminar, attendees will engage with other professionals to strengthen their foundation of today’s best practice knowledge and enhance their skills to function effectively in the critical role of clinical supervisor. Day 1 explores the dynamics of group supervision, while Day 2 focuses on the games played in supervision.

Day 1: Supervision: Crafting Successful Group Supervision (7 CE Hours, 2 hours Ethics)
Conducting clinical supervision in a group setting brings richness and a different energy to the process than one-on-one supervision. Do you have the tools to be successful? You have the supervisees, and a site to meet, but what comes next? Do you have the skills, the competencies, and the knowledge of today’s best practice models?

This course will give you a comprehensive overview of what you need to begin successfully supervising groups, including:

  • A review of the impact of the regulations;
  • A review of best practices for contracting, record-keeping and regulatory compliance;
  • A review of ethical implications for consideration;
  • An opportunity to examine common challenges of group supervision, including transference and counter-transference in group settings, confidentiality considerations, and how to manage processes;
  • A review of specific Group Supervision models, including Interactional, Competency-Based, Task and Reflective methodologies of practice

Learning objectives for course participants include:

  • Identifying the essential requirements of group clinical supervision practice;
  • Understanding the unique needs and challenges of supervising a group; and
  • Learning a variety of models, tools, and best practices that will result in effective group supervision.

Day 2: Supervision Overcoming the Games Played in Supervision (7 CE Hours, Includes 2 Hours Ethics)
It is the task of the supervisor to ensure that supervision is designed to foster a supportive and nurturing supervisor and supervisee relationship. This relationship is the context for facilitating a supervisee to acquire knowledge-based competencies and healthy professional attitudes and values. Best practices in social work clinical supervision underscore that a strong supervisory alliance is essential to foster supervisee growth. However, there can be many relational challenges in supervision evident in the variety of games that can be played by either the supervisor or the supervisee.  This workshop will overview these games, highlight the power imbalance that exists in the supervisory relationship and identify strategies that can be used to best respond to games in supervision.

Learning objectives for course participants include:

  • Identifying common games and relationship challenges that may occur in clinical supervision;
  • Distinguishing supervisor games from supervisee games and describing complementary transactions;
  • Identifying strategies that supervisors can use to effectively confront games and enhance the supervisory process; and
  • Providing opportunity for self-reflection and increased awareness of personal game playing.

 Attendees who attend both days will earn 14.0 Category I Contact Hours, including 4.0 Category I Contact Hours of Ethics.
