Clinical Supervision

Date: 8:30am - 5:00pm PST February 28, 2018

This course gives clinicians the information and skills necessary to develop competence in counseling supervision. It also meets the 30-hour requirement for the supervisors of candidates seeking licensure from the Oregon Board of Licensed Professional Counselors and Therapists (OBLPCT).

Topics to be covered include:

  • Research-informed theories and approaches to supervision
  • The central tasks of supervision
  • Personal factors, counter-transference and the parallel process
  • Diversity, cross-cultural and multicultural competence
  • Ethical and legal perspectives and risk management
  • Informed consent, supervision contracting and evaluation

Participants will have the opportunity to discuss actual supervisory highlights and challenges and experience common scenarios in a supportive atmosphere.

The course is designed for current and future supervisors of graduate interns, clinical staff, and licensure candidates.

Past participants have said…

“The exercises were great and the overall “tone” was perfect for cultivating rich discussion about supervision ethics.

“The group activities and discussions opened up discussion to a very diverse group of clinicians, providing many opportunities for alternate views of clinical supervision.”
