    LIVE ONLINE
    Brochure

           

    Presenter: Dr. Toni Tollerud

    Description:

    This workshop will focus on professional ethics and best practices that are critical for counselors, social workers, and other professional therapists/clinicians who work in an agency, clinical or school setting as supervisors, or who receive supervision.  It is the responsibility of supervisors, and the art of supervision, to help ensure that professional therapists are effectively equipped with the necessary skills and knowledge to deliver competent and ethical services.  It also emphasizes the responsibility of the profession to protect the welfare of every client. 

    Supervision is an integral part of training and continuing education for professionals. This workshop will review supervision best practices by updating the most current ethical standards, provide recent information, review policies and procedures, and highlight intentional interventions for supervisors. This will include ethical and legal concerns for planning the supervision sessions, building a strong supervisory relationship, assuring informed consent, documenting supervision sessions, and evaluating supervisee progress. A review of how the Covid-19 pandemic has influenced ethical behavior in supervision will be presented.

    Opportunity to practice the skills through role play and scenarios will occur.  Handouts will be provided.

    ·       The content of supervision

    ·       Supervisor and supervisee responsibilities

    ·       Evaluation, remediation, endorsement, and documentation in supervision

    • 2.    Review a model for ethical decision making and analyze its effectiveness
    • 3.    Differentiate between supervision and consultation

    4.    Review the Illinois State rules for misconduct

     Description:
    Clinical supervision is an integral component to the training and development of professionals in the field of professional counseling. There are many ways to accomplish this goal. It is believed that group supervision offers supervisees with an important and unique learning context. It can provide a supportive environment where peers are able to share similar concerns and explore common skills and goals. Peer supervision allows licensed professionals to pursue activities around counseling and supervision issues salient to supervision practices. Triadic supervision, which is approved by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs, enables supervisors to work with two supervisees simultaneously in supervision.

    Objectives:  As a result of participating in the workshop, attendees will:

    This workshop will explore these alternative approaches to the traditional one-to-one individual supervision. Effective strategies and best practices for each approach will be reviewed and practiced. There will be opportunities to see examples and critique the role of the supervisor.
