If you are a supervisor and are supervising unlicensed support providers who are working with system-involved youth and their families, this is an important training for you. We will focus on issues of culture in supervision and also on some legal issues of supervision. Learning will include ethical boundaries in supervision and how this parallels boundaries that support providers need to establish and maintain in their relationships. We will also describe and review the relevance of countertransference in the supervisory relationship and how to help supervisees identify this in order to stay focused on, and most effectively address, the needs of system-involved youth and their families. Lastly, we will also define and address the zone of proximal learning and how we, as supervisors, can best understand and access this zone on behalf of our supervisees. All of these things above will be touched upon during Day One and then we will go broader and deeper during Day Two. Day Two on 6/10/22
