Event description
Workshop Description
The Certificate in Clinical Supervision is a 3-day (20-hour) strength-based and skill-focused advanced level training.  It meets the NJ Board of Social Work Examiners’ requirement for Clinical Social Work Supervisors, and also provides 20 CEHs toward the Approved Clinical Supervisor (ACS) credential for LPCs and LMFTs. The course presents an overview of supervisory models and explores the use of an integrated approach to clinical supervision – one that utilizes a developmental context while infusing a strength-based, solution-focused approach. It explores three important areas of clinical supervision: relationship building, administrative tasks and teaching supervisees.
Important topic areas discussed throughout the three-day course include: Establishing Boundaries; Parallel Process; Motivating Employees; Exploring Legal and Ethical Issues; and Evaluating Supervision. The training offers a wealth of knowledge and variety of hands-on skills to meet the demands of a clinical supervisor. Course may be taken by non-social work supervisors.
17.5 Clinical continuing education clock hours and 2.5 Ethics continuing education clock hours
Participants must attend all 3 days for certificate!
