Course Description

This class introduces the most current best practices and guidelines for telesupervision and supervision. Participants will learn the complexity of the multiple components of supervisor competence both in remote (telesupervision) and in face-to-face clinical supervision. There will be an emphasis on multicultural identities and worldviews in the context of establishing the supervisory relationship, which is then translated to the supervision contract. Participants will learn about goal setting and anchored feedback, as well as assessing the relationship and outcomes. There will be discussion about the impact of trauma and trauma-informed supervision, managing countertransference and emotional reactivity, and enhancing supervisor competence in self-awareness, care, and support. Lastly, there will be a proactive approach to addressing ethical and legal issues. Lecture, discussion, and attention to complex issues in supervision will be included. This class meets the California clinical supervision course requirement for licensure renewal.
