Clinical Supervision for Healthcare Professionals
Rebecca E. Williams, PhD
CE Credit: 3 Hours
Learning Level: Intermediate
Clinical Supervision for Healthcare Professionals is a 3-hour online continuing education (CE) course that outlines best practices in psychotherapy supervision and reviews the structure of the supervisory relationship.
Topics presented include developmental models of supervision, goals of the supervisory experience, ethics and risk management in the supervision process, using technology in supervision, and diversity awareness training for the supervisee.
The vital and, at times, challenging relationship between supervisor and supervisee is discussed and compared to the therapy relationship. The importance of self-care for both the supervisee and the supervisor is also highlighted.
A review of the type and structure of performance evaluations is included, along with information about successful termination. Although this course is primarily written for psychotherapists, many of the essential facets of supervision apply to other disciplines such as occupational therapy and social work. This information is offered to support those healthcare professionals who wish to increase their competencies as clinical supervisors.
