The Supervision Training Program comprises a one-year curriculum which provides experienced supervisors and those interested in psychotherapy supervision a background in the theory and practice of supervision from a psychodynamic perspective, and provides an opportunity to look more deeply into the complexity of constructing a positive supervisory environment. For many decades, standard practice was that any credentialed psychotherapist could be a supervisor. Traditionally, most supervisors, from the newly minted through the advanced professional, have had to invent their own versions of supervision, cobbled together from the bits and pieces of their own supervisory experiences, without grounding in theory or practical guidance. Recently, as people have looked at the teaching and learning of psychotherapy, supervision has taken on a focus of its own, as more than just a client-centered experience or an extension of the psychotherapeutic process.
This program provides a comprehensive view of the overlaps and differences between supervision and psychotherapy, and examines how conscious and unconscious forces, both within and between supervisor and supervisee, must be addressed for the supervisory experience to be effective.
This course satisfies the training requirement of the social work boards of Maryland and Virginia mandated for those social workers who supervise candidates for social work licensure.
Participants will be able to:
The Program consists of eight three-hour, once-monthly meetings, each devoted to a different topic. The first half of each session is a didactic and clinical exploration of that day’s topic led by members of the faculty, who are experienced supervisors. The second part is an ongoing, experiential supervision group led by one faculty member for the entire year.
Participants will receive three (3) CE hours per class.
