GROUP CLINICAL SUPERVISION
Trainer: Natalie Contreras, MA, LPC
January 10th, 2017 10 am – 4 pm Denville, NJ
♦Target audience is social workers and counselors of intermediate and advanced skill levels.
Group supervision allows the therapist to consult and network with peers while receiving clinical guidance. This type of supervision can be extremely valuable and beneficial to social services professionals. The group supervisor is primarily responsible for the planning and implementation of the group, while facilitating participants’ self-discovery and awareness, and ensuring clients receive high quality services. The goal of this workshop is to provide useful tools to assist with facilitation of a clinical supervision group.
Those attending will gain knowledge on structuring group supervision and stages of group development. Participants will learn effective solutions for dealing with difficult individuals, group conflict, and supervisee resistance. Techniques for increasing group cohesion and leadership skills will also be provided. The expectations between supervisor and supervisee, as well as the clinical supervision requirements for LSWs and LACs will be discussed.

♦ Apply essential leadership styles, skills and techniques for working with difficult supervisees,
