All-Site Supervision Forums

Each of these two 4.0-hour forums create an opportunity for all the supervisors currently in training at the Center for Family Based Training to 1) share current collective challenges they are facing as supervisors in FBMHS and 2) discuss creative strategies for addressing these challenges.  Dr. Jones, the founder and director of CFBT facilitates the forums and is joined by other teaching faculty.  One of the goals of the forums is to ensure everyone (supervisors and faculty) share a common understanding of the current context in which supervisors operate and deliver services. The forums are held at the beginning of the training year (September) and at the end (May).   

This is a live synchronous distance learning activity conducted in real time, allowing for simultaneous participation of participants and instructors from different locations. The supervision forums count toward required annual supervision training hours in Family Based Mental Health Services.  However, CE credit is not available. 

Objectives:

As a result of participating in the forums, supervisors will:

  1. Recognize common challenges in delivering FBMHS and supervising therapists
  2. Identify strategies for effectively supporting therapists in training-related tasks
