Supervision is more than tending to schedules, checking documentation, and reviewing cases. Clinical supervisors are in the unique position to assist clinicians in their ongoing clinical skill development. Adopting the concept of deliberate practice, supervisors can help clinicians implement clinical skills that may lead to better outcomes for the people they serve. These interactive sessions will guide participants in exploring current practices, focusing on skill practice to enhance supervision, and incorporating routine feedback for specific skills. Participants will practice using real- and case-examples to examine managing feedback, difficult situations, and cultural differences. WHEN: Every Wednesday, April 24 – May 29, 2024 from 12:00 – 1:30 pm Eastern OBJECTIVES: Identify “stuck points” in current clinical supervision practices – managing differences and roadblocks Explore and learn about the concepts of deliberate practice Participate in exercises that promote competency in giving performance-based feedback INTENDED AUDIENCE: Behavioral Health, Substance Use Disorders, Mental Health, and Recovery Service providers located in HHS Region 3 (Delaware, the District of Columbia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and West Virginia) Have two (2) years of experience as a clinical supervisor and understand the concepts of supervision PARTICIPANT COMMITMENT & EXPECTATIONS Access to appropriate technology to utilize Zoom videoconferencing platform (internet connection, webcam, laptop/tablet, speakers and microphone) Attend a one-hour online Orientation on April 24, 2024 Commit to 5-weeks of online training for 1.5 hours weekly from May 1 – 29, 2024 Complete weekly self-study learning activities TRAINER(S)/FACILITATOR(S): Amy Shanahan, MS, CADC THERE IS NO COST TO PARTICIPATE: The first 35 registrants will receive a waiver that covers the entire $350 cost of participation.
