Robert Taibbi, M.S.W.
Being a supervisor requires strong clinical skills, along with an understanding of the needs of therapists at different stages in their development and the key trouble spots they’re likely to encounter. In this course, we’ll explore a four-stage model for appropriate supervision of therapists as they gain experience and maturity. You’ll learn how to serve as teacher to the often overwhelmed beginner, facilitate the professional and personal growth of the more advanced practitioner, encourage autonomy and accountability in the mature therapist, and further the creativity of the expert clinician. We’ll also discuss the value of making mistakes, the ethical and professional challenges facing new supervisors, and the pros and cons of group supervision. Note: This workshop fulfills many state board requirements for training in clinical supervision.
