The LPC/LMFT Supervisor Training course prepares participants to identify the needs of their supervisees whether supervising for their employer, as a Supervisor for the licensing boards, or as a Supervisor or Consultant for associations or certifications. This training is unique from other Supervisor Trainings with an emphasis on activities to build a relationship with a supervisee, creating a plan for growth for supervisees, and activities to build self-awareness of supervisees.
