Effective Clinical Supervision in the Face of the Pandemic” 

approved for 3 Supervision credit hours for Counselors and MFTs

The current pandemic has changed the face of supervision for many clinical supervisors and counselors.  Addressing the anxiety and uncertainties of the supervisees and dealing with a world that is in constantly changing makes clinical supervision challenging in these times.

Clinical supervision is an important part of the profession and imperative for gatekeeping and management of supervisees work with clients (Martin et al., 2017).   Due to the pandemic current technology has become the resource for many for supervision through tele supervision.  This mode of supervision has some challenges and benefits for the continued supervision in our profession.   Ducat and Kumar (2015) suggested that tele supervision can be just as effective as in person supervision. 

This workshop will address ways to help manage supervises anxiety and build their self-efficacy while utilizing telehealth.  We will also address the power of anticipating change and how to embrace every situation in this new way of practicing.  Lastly, we will discuss the use of tele supervision including the challenges and benefits of the use of such technology.

  • Supervisors will learn ways to manage supervisee anxiety as it pertains to providing clinical service through tele-health.
  • Supervisors will have tools to measure and increase supervisees self-efficacy as it pertains to utilizing tele-health for clinical services.
  • Supervisors will engage in learning that will assist them with maximizing tele-supervision as a resource.
