Robert Taibbi • Saturday Morning
LOCATION: CALVERT ROOM
As a clinical supervisor, you’re part mentor, part administrator, part parent, part advocate, and part den mother. No wonder clinical supervision can so often go astray. This workshop will explore some of the common mistakes supervisors make as well as how to learn from these mistakes and adapt your approach to your supervisee’s unique style and changing needs.
Through videos, demonstrations, and case examples, you’ll learn how to handle such common pitfalls as:
- Spoon-feeding the supervisee by overemphasizing theory and technique rather than the use of self and the dynamics of connection with the client
- Focusing on the client’s history and diagnostics rather than on the responses and the choices of the clinician in the ongoing therapeutic relationship
- Having unclear supervisory goals and failing to understand different developmental needs of supervisees as they mature and grow
Robert Taibbi, LCSW, trains nationally and internationally in the areas of couples, families, brief therapy, and clinical supervision. He’s in private practice and is the author of more than 300 articles and five books, including Boot Camp Therapy: Action-Oriented Brief Approaches to Anxiety, Anger & Depression.
