This workshop is tailored to experienced supervisors and covers the practical skills essential to effective clinical supervision, providing attendees with a structured model for supervision in a community health setting.

This program meets the approved board continuing education requirements for professional clinical counselors and other counselors.

Learning Objectives: We’re pleased to offer our Clinical Supervision workshop to cover the practical skills essential to effective clinical supervision, providing attendees with a structured model for supervision. Topics include contracts, stages of supervisor/supervisee development, effective clinical documentation, and assessment/evaluation.
