GROUP CLINICAL SUPERVISION- October 3rd, 2017 10 am – 4 pm Denville, NJ

A ROAD MAP FOR DEVELOPMENTAL CLINICAL SUPERVISION- November 14th, 2017 (10 am – 4 pm) Denville, NJ

Supervision Models are theoretical roadmaps for developing effective supervision techniques. Developmental models view supervision as an evolutionary process with defined characteristics and skills at each stage of development. Determining the clinician’s developmental level is the first step in choosing clinical supervision strategies and forms the foundation from which the other steps follow. Supervision methods are adjusted to meet the needs of each supervisee and his or her developmental stage.

The goal of this workshop is to identify the developmental stages of the clinician as well as the supervisor. This workshop provides information regarding the developmental model and Integrated Development Model, and methods and techniques of supervision for mental health practitioners. Participants will apply the theories and techniques discussed in the workshop through interactive exercises.

TRAUMA-INFORMED CLINICAL SUPERVISION- December 6th, 2017 (10 am – 4 pm) Denville, NJ

The vast majority of individuals seeking treatment in behavioral health settings have personal histories of trauma. Providing trauma-informed care requires the practitioner to deliver services that recognize the impact trauma has on individuals, families and communities, and respond with trauma-informed practices to prevent retraumatization. It is also necessary for those working with trauma survivors to understand the potential this work has on them and the risk it poses for vicarious traumatization.

Trauma-informed clinical supervision is focused on teaching trauma-informed practices as well as preparing supervisees for the impact of vicarious trauma and its management. The supervisor-supervisee relationship embodies the same trauma-informed care principles as the helper-client relationship.

This 5-hour workshop will provide the participant with a framework for trauma-informed supervision, which includes trauma- informed and reflective supervision components, and recognition and management of secondary traumatic stress in the helper. Participants will learn skills for relationship building, and recognizing secondary stress and vicarious traumatization and fostering resilience in supervisees and themselves.
