Presenter Bio

Clinical supervision is so much more than arbitrary case reviews and signatures. An understanding of newer evidence-based approaches, such as acceptance and commitment therapy, and bring more vitality and clinical value to your supervision sessions.

One of the newer models is the SHAPE framework (Morris & Bilich-Eric), which can help move supervisees from passive participants to curious, competent, flexible professionals. It is an accessible, contextual model that teaches supervisees to:

  • identify when to persist and when to change what they do in therapy
  • learn from experience and loosen strict rule-governed behaviors
  • avoid getting caught up in struggles with clients’ thoughts and emotions
  • construct the big picture of what therapy and supervision are all about
  • take small action steps as key to creating a pattern of change

Through lecture, discussion, video, case examples, and experiential exercises, Dr. Richard Sears will bring the principles of effective clinical supervision approaches to life with his wisdom, humor, and passion to help SHAPE your supervisees into competent professionals in your very next supervision session!
