(NEW) Online Training – Imperfect Progress: The Joys and Challenges of Clinical Supervision

June 30 Login to Zoom 8:45pm ; Training 9:00am -12pm (EDT) $99, 3 CEUs Presenter: Sabrina N’Diaye, PhD, LCSW-C Zoom.us, MD + Google Map

Strengthening our supervisory skills is more than a “check-box” on our license renewal.  Instead, it is a career-long journey of knowing ourselves, our profession, our colleagues, and staying abreast of changes in the human condition.  As leaders in a profession that has experienced abrupt change over the past three years, it’s imperative for us to re-examine our roles, and expand our capacity for supporting others. 

This half-day course is an opportunity to check the “pulse” of your life as a supervisor. Together we will ask, (and answer) some of the burning questions that supervisors are facing, including our role in mentoring telehealth therapists, establishing healthy boundaries with our supervisees, modeling healthy therapeutic interventions, and exploring potential ethical dilemmas. 

In the safety of other supervisors in our field you will:

  1. Honor your value.
  2. Understand the key elements of supervision, and the key qualities of a strong supervisor.
  3. Learn to release notions of perfection and shame in supervision.
  4. Name some of your underdeveloped areas of continued growth.
  5. Seek guidance and support other supervisors around challenging cases.
  6. Learn to acknowledge the teaching in every clinical experience.

This class meets the requirement for clinicians who need to maintain their supervisory status and can also be applied towards the 12 hours required to obtain Board-Approved Supervisor Status.

The Ferentz Institute, Inc. is an approved sponsor of the Maryland Board of Social Work Examiners for continuing education credits for licensed social workers in Maryland. CEU approval for all trainings is also granted to Psychologists, LCPC’s and MFT’s and approved by the Board of Professional Counselors and Therapists and the Board of Examiners for Psychologists in Maryland. Reciprocity has also been granted for clinicians in Washington, DC, Virginia, West Virginia, Indiana, Georgia, Massachusetts, and Texas. We encourage all clinicians outside of Maryland to check with their respective Boards for reciprocity of our CEUs. The Institute also maintains full responsibility for all programming.
In order to provide Category 1 CEUs for all of our trainings, the Maryland Board of Social Work Examiners requires online workshops to be live, interactive, and experienced in real time. Therefore, none of our trainings are recorded for later viewing.
