Course Description:

You’ve worked hard as a professional, developing clinical skills and intuition that have been invaluable. You’re ready to step into your next role: clinical supervisor. But being a good clinician isn’t enough to guarantee you’ll be a competent supervisor. Do you have the knowledge, skills and attitude to provide effective and ethical supervision?

Or maybe you’re already a clinical supervisor and your supervision has started feeling outdated, monotonous and boring. You find yourself going through the motions; supervising new clinicians just isn’t as rewarding as it once was. You’re left searching for ways to breathe new life into your practice.

  • 20 practical prevention strategies to avoid problems BEFORE they occur
  • Tactics for giving difficult or uncomfortable feedback
  • Strategies for managing an impaired or unethical supervisee
  • How to protect your license – avoid common pitfalls that lead to legal and ethical dilemmas
