It is designed to assist the social worker in exploring ways to reduce personal stress, thereby improving the decision-making process and ultimately improving outcomes for social workers, agencies, and clients.

Clinical Supervision: Putting theory into practice

1:15-4:30 p.m., 3 CEUs for social workers and counselors, meets supervision requirement
Presented by Amanda Frye and Meghan Cook

Participants will gain insight into their clinical supe

rvision style while learning and developing clinical theories to apply to practice. The rationale, necessity, and implementation of clinical supervision will be taught to ensure adherence to codes of ethics and protect client’s rights. We’ll discuss the components of specific biopsychosocial theoretical models such as Attachment Theory and Psychodynamic Model and their connection to clinical supervision. This training aims to provide the beginning clinical supervisor with a foundation of theory to formulate their own supervision style. Further, it allows the advanced clinical supervisor to evaluate their current supervisory style and incorporate additional models of practice.
