"...extremely thorough information for our new supervision program. Thank you." -Angela Wheelus, LPC; Director of Student Support Svcs, Georgia Highlangs College

 

"Eye-opening workshop as regards board law rulings versus civil law proceedings!" Georgia LCSW


Eric Groh LPC has been approved by NBCC as an Approved Continuing Education Provider, ACEP No. 6921.  Programs that do not qualify for NBCC credit are clearly identified. Eric Groh LPC is solely responsible for all aspects of the programs. 

Objectives:

1) Participants will learn how addiction and mental impairment deteriorate into licensing board complaints.

2) Participants will demonstrate knowledge of critical factors in interviewing and selecting candidates for supervision.

3) Participants will demonstrate learning of  "The Redundancy Principle" and it's importance in providing authoritative clinical supervision.

4) Participants will demonstrate abilities to remove constraints and obstacles and allow supervision to be more enjoyable and rewarding.

5) Participants will learn how to apply the Redundancy Principle to develop a framework for supervising the impaired professional.

There is a higher probability of a licensee being sanctioned when the board determines that addiction is material evidence in an ethics complaint. As a supervisor you may encounter supervisees with prior disciplinary actions taken against their license. In addition, after engaging in a supervision arrangements you may discover your supervisee is in active addiction. The afternoon session will focus on supervising the impaired professional.  

This workshop is an excellent opportunity for supervisees needing to know what both your supervisor and state licensing board expect of you.

Due to decreased quality employment opportunities and other factors necessary in learning the practice of psychotherapy, many therapists are receiving incomplete clinical training in critical areas of practice.  Nonetheless, many are eager to engage in a supervision relationship that will make them better therapists. As supervisors, a philosophy of creating competent therapists prior to their practicing independently allows us to participate in enhancing ethical practice within the profession. The concept of freedom in supervision is predicated on supervisors reconciling concerns about personal liabilities, when to actively intervene and allowing supervisees opportunities to take risk, make mistakes and grow. This workshop will teach supervisors how to attain this freedom and fluidity.
