Extending the Reach of Clinical Supervisors: An Overview of Technology-Based Clinical Supervision

Clinical supervision decreases turnover, improves staff morale, and leads to better client outcomes. However for counselors working in rural or isolated settings, barriers related to time, distance, and resources may limit access to clinical supervision. Technology-based supervision may be a mechanism for building a better-trained substance use disorder treatment workforce that is able to meet the needs of clients in their own communities. This one hour presentation will provide an overview of barriers facing clinical supervision for the frontier/rural addiction treatment workforce and how technology-based supervision can address those challenges. In addition, participants will be exposed to a variety of tools for technology-based clinical supervision.

Presenter: Tobie Barton, M.A., Project Manager Center for the Application of Substance Abuse Technologies (CASAT)
