Trauma Informed Supervision:
Strategies to Avoid Burnout (6 CEs)
February 15, 2023
Presenter: Dr. Toni Tollerud
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 alternative theoretical approaches to trauma-informed supervision including changes in language, being strength-based, and using 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.
