Clinical Supervision in Behavioral Health
Clinical supervision is the means by which all applied health and mental health fields are taught, yet few supervisors receive specific training in this important role. Clinical supervision, while appearing on the surface to be similar to psychotherapy and counseling, is a different relationship with unique qualities and characteristics that set it apart. It requires the development of new knowledge and expertise. Ethically and legally, supervisors are responsible for patient/client care as well as the training and development of their supervisees. Supervision becomes a balancing act between the needs of the patient/client population and the needs of the supervisee.
It is no longer possible for clinicians to say, "I am an experienced and competent therapist, counselor, psychologist or psychiatrist, so therefore I can be a competent supervisor." The practitioner, regardless of degree, credentials, field of practice, work environment or the population served, must develop a separate knowledge base and skill set in order to be competent and effective in this role and avoid ethical/legal pitfalls. Dr. Campbell will help you feel more competent as a supervisor as she strengthens your ethical clinical judgment and relationship skills. This seminar will help you do your job better and give you clinical skills to rely on throughout your professional career.
