Clinical Supervision:
Proven Tools and Techniques for Success

Welcome to the world of supervision.  As a clinical supervisor, you’re part mentor, part administrator, part parent, part advocate, part den mother…

You’re pulled in every direction, yet feel stuck in the middle between those you supervise and the administrative higher-ups.  You’re an advocate for staff needs, responsible for creating good staff morale, but also responsible for the quality of services. With so many hats on your head, how do you keep it all in balance?

The ultimate mystery of clinical supervision is figuring out how to help people not just be competent and compassionate, but help them weave together their strengths, skills, and personalities into a unique clinical style that gets the best results.

In my 40 years of clinical and supervisory experience, I’ve learned the ins and outs of supervision – and I’m excited to share this insight with you in a new online course, Clinical Supervision: Proven Tools and Techniques for Success.

This comprehensive course will get you thinking like a supervisor and using your clinical skills to both challenge and support staff while ensuring quality control.

You have the power to improve outcomes by guiding your staff to become the best therapists they can be. Don’t miss this opportunity to transform your supervisor skills and set yourself apart from other supervisors.
