Supervision of Supervision in ESFT

Altoona Site Instructors: Josh Irvine, MA, LPC & Adam Boguski, MDiv
Norristown Site Instructors: C. Wayne Jones, PhD & Frani Pollack, PhD
WellSpan Philhaven Site Instructor: C. Wayne Jones, PhD

The three-hour small group supervision of supervision training occurs in the afternoons following the five half-day ESFT Case Seminars at each of the three training sites. On a rotating basis, each supervisor is given 45-minutes to present a team delivering the FBMHS in-home treatment model, ESFT. Supervisors present videos of their teams doing family therapy, as well as videos of their team supervision. They obtain personalized feedback on supervising their teams, are encouraged to reflect upon their work as a supervisor and have opportunities to practice new skills in a supportive atmosphere. ESFT supervisory tools, such as the Brief FBMHS Adherence Scale, are utilized to strengthen supervisory skills in helping supervisees implement the ESFT model with fidelity.

This is a live synchronous distance learning activity conducted in real time, allowing for simultaneous participation of participants and instructors from different locations. This supervision-of-supervision series counts 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 this 15-hour supervision-of-supervision series, supervisors will be able to:

  1. Support the development of supervisees’ skills needed to implement the ESFT model with fidelity.
  2. Establish and maintain a positive, meaningful, and effective relationship with supervisees individually and collectively.
