Description

Geared toward clinical supervisors in the counseling, marriage and family therapy, psychology, and social work fields, and delivered in an interactive group format, this workshop focuses on solution-focused supervision approaches to the development of clinical supervisees. Designed to identify and integrate supervisees' strengths, solution-focused supervision centers on the belief that the supervisee is the expert within their role and that the supervisor allows the supervisee to make the decisions. This foundational belief fosters feelings of empowerment, emphasizing the inherent strengths, skills, and resources of the supervisee, along with their ability to recognize and implement solutions to clinical situations. Techniques specific to the application of solution-focused supervision will be reviewed and applied using interactive case studies. Thought-provoking case vignettes will also address diversity considerations, culturally-responsive supervision, and ethical decision-making in supervision. Supervision ethics will be discussed with reference to the ACES Best Practices in Supervision, and the ACA, MFT, NASW, and APA Codes of Ethics.
