This seminar will focus upon the components of the supervision and consultation process that promote professional development, skill acquisition and personal growth and competency across diverse clinical and professional settings. The importance of best practice and overall efficacy in treatment, ethical issues, cultural competency and the application of psychology to enhance the well being of clients, practitioners and the overall community will also be addressed. Attention will be directed toward the scope and setting where supervision and consultation are conducted and the theory, practice and models employed to maximize effectiveness.
The scope and settings include: (1) college counseling centers, (2) private practice, and (3) the DCPA Center for Learning and Professional Development and its mentor program.
1. Discuss the importance of diversity and cultural competency in supervision pertaining to minority groups.
2. Describe how supervision and consultation enhance clinical efficacy and promote ethical practice.
3. Describe how Mind/Body approaches can be used in supervision and consultation to:
- · Expand empathic awareness and limbic resonance
- · Promote emotional regulation, reduce stress and increase bi-hemispheric neural integration (Integration of cognition and emotion)
- · Deepen and expand clinical focus
- · Provide a healing, new narrative
4. Discuss how supervision may best explore and utilize the role of the Transference/Counter-transference matrix, inter-subjectivity and the mirror neurons system in the clinical encounter.
5. Participants will learn an approach to working in a compassionate manner with supervisees around increasing their awareness and facility with issues involving the privileged and oppressed facets of their identity.
