Clinical Supervision requires such an important set of skills that this training involves two days of in-depth lecture, large and small group discussion, role plays and self-reflection. Dr. Bennett will facilitate the 15 hours where students will examine the Board of Behavioral Sciences rules and regulations, evaluate on-line and film examples of therapy and supervision, explore their own experiences and discuss what traits make a solid, even exceptional clinical supervisor.

The second day will involve lecture, large and small group discussion and self-reflection regarding Secondary Trauma. Students will participate in exercises to determine their own obstacles as well as possible supervisees’ issues with trauma. Diagnoses of childhood and adolescents will be presented from the Diagnostic and Statistic Manual V. There will be time for case consultation throughout the two days.

  1. Participants will be able to describe the key components of providing culturally competent supervision, and recognizing and addressing transference, counter-transference and secondary trauma.
  2. Participants will know the difference between external stressors, counter-transference and secondary trauma as it relates to clinical competence.
  3. Participants will be able to identify the primary new diagnoses in the DSM 5 and changes from the DSM IV relevant to youth and family services.
