This 21-hour series is comprised of six 3.5-hour small group supervision-of-supervision sessions. These sessions are held in the afternoons (12:30 to 4:00) following ESFT Case Seminar at each of three training sites, Philhaven, MCIU, and PCS. (The schedule varies at our Mechanicsburg site, where supervisors meet during extended lunches on clinical training days.) Supervisors are each assigned 60-minutes where they present a team delivering the state-mandated intensive, in-home treatment model, ESFT, to a family. The small group nature of the series allows supervisors to present videos, obtain personalized feedback, reflect upon their work, and practice new skills in a supportive atmosphere. ESFT supervisory tools, such as the DocF, the Supervision Self-Monitoring Form, and Clinical Skills Assessments, are discussed and utilized to strengthen supervisory skills in helping supervisees implement the ESFT model with fidelity.
As a result of participating in this supervision-of-supervision series, supervisors will be able to:
- Support supervisees ability to conceptualize cases within an ESFT framework.
- Recognize interactions between teams and families that are consistent with ESFT implementation
- Establish and maintain a positive, meaningful, and effective relationship with supervisees
This supervision-of-supervision series counts toward required annual supervision training hours in Family Based Mental Health Services, but is not currently offered for CE credit. CE credit, however, is provided for the supervision workshops listed below.
