An Experiential Approach to Clinical Supervision: Latest Updates – Carol Falender, PhD; Edward Shafranske, PhD, APBB

This workshop is designed to describe approaches to supervisory dilemmas in a competency-based framework.  Dilemmas include multicultural worldviews, ethics, emotional reactivity, trauma, including risk for vicarious trauma, and dealing with difficult situations in supervision.  Emphasis is placed on developing skills, reflection, problem-solving, feedback, and effective learning strategies within a framework of the learning cycle, managing countertransference, enhancing multicultural competence, cultural humility, and intersectionality. Through a competency-based approach, metatheoretical strategies for practice will be demonstrated through lecture, video review, problem-solving, and reflection.
