FULL CIRCLE: BASIC TO ADVANCED SKILLS IN CLINICAL SUPERVISION - Course 3
Saturday, December 2, 2017
10:00 AM-6:00 PM
Each of these 7-hour courses can be taken as stand-alone courses or as a part in our series Full Circle: Basic to Advanced Skills in Clinical Supervision for Creative Arts Therapists, Professional Counselors, and Psychotherapists.
This series is geared towards art therapists, counselors, creative arts therapists and related mental health practitioners who are interested in providing supervision. All levels of clinician participants are welcome: clinicians who have never supervised before and are interested in pursuing this aspect of practice; clinicians who have supervised before and have had minimal to no formal supervision training; and seasoned supervisors who are seeking formalized supervision credentials. We will cover roles and functions of clinical supervisors, models of clinical supervision, professional development (including creating disclosure statements), methods and techniques in clinical supervision, relationship issues, cultural issues, group supervision, legal and ethical issues, and evaluation of supervisees. This 5-part series can be taken as a whole for 35 educational contact hours or as individual courses.
Course 3: (12/2/17) Working with Difference: The Supervisory Triadic Relationship
Theoretical approaches that are cognizant of differences are useful in clinical relationships. Similarly, an approach that negates to address cultural differences, particularly race, can lead to similar microaggressions in the supervisory relationship at best or can be damaging at worst. Acknowledging and speaking about differences in supervision models’ ways of relating and understanding between clients and therapists. We are currently in an exciting time of practice, as scholars are introducing intersectionality, critical race theory, and critical race feminism into our fields and disciplines: in art therapy specifically and more broadly in the creative arts and psychology. We will discuss the limitations of multiculturalism (i.e., awareness, knowledge, and skills) and identify how to employ a more systemic and integrative paradigm into the practice of supervision. Modeling of addressing differences and raising difficult topics are considered in terms of the triadic relationship (i.e., supervisor – supervisee – client). This 7-hour course can be taken as a stand-alone course or as a part one of five in our series of: Full Circle: Basic to Advanced Skills in Clinical Supervision for Creative Arts Therapists, Professional Counselors, and Psychotherapists.
