The LPC and LMFT Supervisor Training prepares participants to become a supervisor and identify the needs of their supervisee whether supervising for their employer or as a supervisor for state licensing boards. This training is unique from other Supervisor Trainings with an emphasis on building a relationship through a selection of activities and creating a plan for growth for a supervisee. A recognition of the roles and responsibilities of supervision as well as a comparison of supervision theories including theory based, non-theory based, and newer research-based perspectives. The process of interviewing, selecting a supervisee, and ethical guidelines in supervision will be examined. Legal and ethical issues in supervision will be identified and participants will be provided electronic documents and ethical paperwork. Participants will select from methods, techniques, and modalities of supervision to personalize to their clinical setting including the use of technology.
