Mental Health Supervision III

Clinical Supervision Special Topics
Steven M. Sultanoff, Ph.D.

This continuation of the first two clinical supervision programs will involve greater participant interaction in groups. The program will highlight experiential models of supervision, assessment of supervisees and training for supervisees. The program will also include an  update of the rules and regulations.  Participants will observe an experiential selection and assessment of supervisees demonstration and examine their own criteria for selection of supervisees. 

Participants are expected to be familiar with the supervision rules and regulations of their respective licensing board(s). 

This course satisfies the Board of Behavioral Sciences and the Board of Psychology requirements for supervision training.
