Top­ic Descriptions

Ethics for Supervisors

The focus of this sec­tion will be to pro­vide par­tic­i­pants with infor­ma­tion on the basics of Clin­i­cal Super­vi­sion in order to meet licen­sure require­ments for recer­ti­fi­ca­tion. Effec­tive super­vi­sion requires knowl­edge of the prin­ci­ples of super­vi­sion, and the abil­i­ty to demon­strate nec­es­sary skills such as address­ing both strengths and chal­lenges of the super­visee, mod­el­ing and dis­cussing eth­i­cal prac­tice, and pro­vid­ing sup­port and encour­age­ment in the learn­ing context.

Learn­ing Objectives:

  1. Define super­vi­sion
  2. Reflect on com­po­nents of supervision
  3. Learn about dif­fer­ent aspects of supervision
  4. Learn about dif­fer­ent roles and goals of supervision
  5. Reflect on com­mon chal­lenges of supervision
  6. Learn how to devel­op a pos­i­tive super­vi­so­ry relationship

Clin­i­cal Supervision

The focus of this sec­tion is to pro­vide par­tic­i­pants with infor­ma­tion on the basics of ethics and bound­ary issues for super­vi­sors in order to meet licen­sure require­ments for recer­ti­fi­ca­tion. Strong eth­i­cal prac­tices are a foun­da­tion of clin­i­cal work, and hav­ing a firm under­stand­ing of its com­po­nents is nec­es­sary for all clin­i­cal super­vi­sors. In this train­ing, par­tic­i­pants will review the code of eth­i­cal con­duct, address cer­tain eth­i­cal com­po­nents, and prac­tice how to make eth­i­cal decisions.

Learn­ing Objectives:

  1. Define ethics
  2. Review code of eth­i­cal conduct
  3. Learn about gray areas and slip­pery slopes
  4. Reflect on confidentiality
