    Trauma Informed Supervision:
    Strategies to Avoid Burnout (6 CEs)

          Presenter: Dr. Toni Tollerud

     



    Specific Topics:
    • Therapists who work with populations experiencing high levels of trauma need intentional supervision that will help them address the complex issues of their clients as well as how they may be reacting psychologically and emotionally in the situations. Supervisors have a responsibility to assess these reactions in the supervisee, and, if necessary, to offer strategies and referrals that will maintain wellness and effectiveness.  This workshop will review the critical factors of a trauma-informed system of care and how supervisors can infuse this into their clinical supervision. It will explore theoretical approaches to trauma-informed supervision including a reflective supervision model.  Additionally, participants will consider trauma within the intersectionality of gender, race, and class, and how it needs to align with the mission of social justice. Finally, participants will review the psychoeducational aspects of vicarious trauma and compassion fatigue, and look at evidence-based strategies to promote self-care and wellness with supervisees.

       Learning Objectives:

      As a result of participating in this workshop, professionals will:

      • 1.    Review the critical factors of a trauma-informed system of care and how this informs clinical supervision
      • 2.    Develop a comprehensive understanding of the effects and complexity of trauma, its potential behavioral manifestations and best practices to address the needs of clients
      • 3.    Understand and recognize trauma as interpersonal and sociopolitical agent in supervision
      • 4.    Consider the intersectionality of gender, race, and class, in the creation of a trauma-informed system of care and how this needs to align with the mission of social justice in clinical supervision
      • 5.    Analyze how reflective supervision can be used to reduce re-traumatization and reinforce personal integrity
      • 6.    Review strategies used in supervision to reduce burnout and address compassion fatigue

    Group, Peer, and Triadic Clinical Supervision Strategies:
    Best Practices (6 CEs)
    Location:
    ASA
    1061 American Lane
    Schaumburg, IL 60173


    Presenter: Dr. Toni Tollerud



     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.
