Supervision is neither counseling nor is it lecture.  Supervision is defined as the artful integration of clinical skills, education and experience to ensure the integrity of clinical services to the client and to develop competence in the supervisee. It provides the structure and framework for learning how to apply knowledge, theory, and clinical procedures to solve human problems. This training presents an overview and conceptual framework for the 15-hour Core course component of MaMHCA’s Supervision Training Program.   It is intended for experienced clinicians who wish to become trained supervisors. It will include examples, role play, and templates for supervision assessment. Topics include: Defining Psychotherapy Supervision, What Makes for a Good Supervisor, Alliance in Therapeutic and Supervisory Relationships, Building Technical Competence, Building Diversity Competence in Supervision, Understanding Supervisor Functioning, Methodology, Design and Evaluation in Psychotherapy Supervision, Major Approaches in Psychotherapy Supervision Training Models, Professional, Ethical, Legal, and Risk Management Issues,  and Research in Psychotherapy Supervision.
