Maximizing The Benefits of Clinical Supervision
The focus of this training is on improving supervisory skills that help the practitioner provide higher quality services. The training will cover five key areas: case specific guidance and direction; state mandated over-site of functional assessments and treatment plans; supervision relative to case load size and workloads; evaluation of practitioner skills and competencies; and, the provision of training for practitioner skills and competencies. Empowerment, self-efficacy, recovery, wellness, person-centeredness, and client choice are meaningless unless we make them meaningful through the services we provide. Each of these concepts will be considered as we discuss each aspect of clinical supervision.
