Clinical Supervisor Training
This training offers the what and how of clinical supervision.
The work that we do in the world of mental health is incredible. We are given the great honor of interacting with fellow humans who are walking a path on which they are experiencing pain, disillusionment, hopelessness, and even suffering to varying degrees. We are invited into their worlds, into their pain and stories, and they allow us to offer whatever strength and encouragement we have. This is amazing. It’s awe-inspiring! What a gift. At the same time, our work is stressful, frustrating, overwhelming, demanding, and sometimes downright heartbreaking. Too many of us get driven to the brink of despair. We can feel helpless, hopeless, or worse…apathetic. We need support and guidance. We need mentorship. We need to know we’re not alone. Clinical supervision is one way to meet these needs. Too often, though, even when supervision is provided, many entities are providing a “check the box” kind of supervision that doesn’t meet the needs of those it serves. Many times this happens because clinical supervisors are given the title, but not offered the support they need in knowing what supervision is or how to provide it. This training offers the what and how of clinical supervision and encourages and empowers you to offer your best self in your role as clinical supervisor. Facilitated by Lynette Rodi, LCPC, LAC
