Clinicians often assume supervisory roles for a variety of reasons, which may range from their desire to serve as a role model and mentor to the fact that supervising is a job requirement. Yet despite the therapist’s own clinical expertise, supervising can be a challenging endeavor. Whether their role includes mentoring a student, a new hire who has just completed their academic requirements, an assistant or other team members, the supervisor can be more effective when given the tools and training to succeed with any challenges this role may bring. The result can then result in a rewarding experience for both the supervisor and the supervisee.
This course will empower the supervisor with tools and strategies to create an effective mentoring experience for all parties. The elements taught in this course will guide the supervisor through multiple mentoring strategies and examples, to help them in creating a successful clinical and administrative environment.
