This workshop will provide registered supervisors with the information, skills and social justice framework to strengthen and deepen their competence in counseling supervision. This training meets the 3-hour requirement for licensed and registered supervisors from the Oregon Board of Licensed Professional Counselors and Therapists (OBLPCT).

Participants in this workshop will discuss:

  • The three most prevalent roles clinical supervisors embody and strategies to work within each
  • Counseling developmental models to guide supervision practices
  • The use of supervisory contracts, and formative/summative evaluation in supervision
  • Ways to promote diversity, cross-cultural and multicultural competence in supervisees
  • Ethical and legal perspectives and risk management
  • Guiding supervisees around areas of transference and counter-transference with specific attention to the socio-political climate and other related challenges

Attendees will have the opportunity to discuss actual supervisory highlights and challenges, and share common scenarios in a supportive atmosphere. Incorporating a genuine approach to supervision will be encouraged, and additional strategies to help supervisees navigate cross cultural barriers will be explored.
