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
