Supervision Refresher Course

Positive Supervision: Strengthening Supervisory Skills with Positive Psychology

Course Level: Intermediate

Target Audience: Social Workers, Licensed Professional Counselors, Psychologists, Addictions Counselors, other mental health professionals

WORKSHOP OVERVIEW

Being a great clinician does not automatically make you a great supervisor or manager. Many skilled practitioners find themselves cast into the role of supervisor with little knowledge or training for how to fulfill this assignment. Responsibility for administrative and business concerns create further challenges, threatening to eclipse deep commitment to the actual work being done with clients.  Focus can quickly turn to “putting out fires” and problem resolution, leaving little time for learning and reflection on what it means to effectively connect with and guide the work with others.  Based on the premise that supervisory relationships serve as a model for work done with clients, this workshop makes the case that investment in a relational style of supervision that identifies and builds on the strengths of supervisees is, ultimately, an investment in employee well-being and client services.  Participants will be offered a way to understand themselves better as supervisors and will learn practical tools for positively engaging supervisees.

 

The workshop will begin with a review of the key elements of the supervisory role allowing the opportunity for participants to examine their relative strengths and growth areas as they relate to each element. The presenters will introduce a framework for development of positive and responsive supervisory relationships that foster trust and establish the groundwork for mutual growth and resilience. Participants will learn approaches drawn from the field of positive psychology for enhancing the effectiveness and well-being of supervisees that also contribute to the depth of the supervisory relationship.  Based on the universality of positive psychology-informed practices, the presenters will also show how using these approaches extends beyond the supervisory realm into direct work with clients.  As the workshop progresses, participants will be asked to consider how they will apply concepts in their situations, as well as areas for ongoing personal development. They will leave with an array of options for strengthening their work as supervisors and a plan for immediate implementation. 
 

MORNING COURSE OBJECTIVES

  • Describe the parts and overall functions of an ethical decision-making model (EDMM).

Afternoon Session:

Ethics Course

Ethical Decision-Making Models:
An Experiential Training for Addressing Ethical Dilemmas

WORKSHOP OVERVIEW

Have you ever faced a practice situation where there did not seem to be a clear path forward? One where you were forced to make a decision though there did not seem to be a good overall solution? Given enough time in the helping professions, you will face an ethical dilemma. This workshop will explore ethical decision-making models as tools for addressing those challenging practice cases. 
 

The workshop will begin with an overview of ethical dilemmas and ethical decision-making models with a focus on explaining one such model in detail. We will then work through various practice cases, applying the decision-making model to explore the case from a variety of perspectives. We will address the importance of moral awareness and intention through the process. The workshop will offer lecture time as well as group application time. Participants will be invited to share practice dilemmas they’ve faced and to work together in groups to apply the presented model.   

Course Level: Intermediate

Target Audience: Social Workers, Licensed Professional Counselors, Psychologists, Addictions Counselors, other mental health professionals
