The Trainer-Mentor Effectiveness as Clinical Supervisors

CE Hours: 6.0
Instructor: C. Wayne Jones, PhD

Tuesday, June 25th, 2019, 8:30am-3:30pm
Carolina Outreach, Durham, North Carolina

This interactive workshop is designed to help trainer-mentors in North Carolina’s intensive, in-home programs expand their skillset as clinical supervisors. To date, a major focus of the trainer-mentors work with teams has been on case conceptualization, which addresses the question, “Is treatment guided by an eco-systemic understanding of the presenting problems?” While this is an extremely important component of helping teams to establish treatment fidelity, it is not enough to ensure positive treatment outcomes. In this training, trainer-mentors are provided tools for expanding their focus in supervision to the question, “How do you know that therapists are implementing ESFT as intended?” This involves reviewing therapists’ videotapes of their family sessions. Guidelines are provided for effectively using videotape review to refine the NIC, attune to interactional pattern, strengthen the therapeutic alliance, and apply common ESFT techniques such  as enactments.

As a result of participating in these training activities, participants will:

  1. Define the elements of effective clinical supervision in ESFT
  2. Clarify the criteria and process for certification as an ESFT Supervisor
  3. Explain and use supervision rating forms, such as Recognizing Process in ESFT Supervision as a guide for strengthening supervisory skills
  4. Describe guidelines for reviewing session videotapes in supervision
  5. Identify treatment outcomes in ESFT and methods for measuring them
  6. Describe common challenges in implementing ESFT and identify solutions to them
