Trainer-Mentor Booster Series 2022-2023

Instructor: C. Wayne Jones, PhD


This 9-hour series is comprised of both small group supervision-of-supervision and supervision didactics. At the North Carolina Intensive In-Home sites, the small group supervision training occurs in the afternoons following All Staff Booster Workshops. In the small group supervision training, each supervisor is given 45-minutes to present a team delivering the state-mandated intensive, 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, 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 the 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.

This supervision-of-supervision series counts toward required annual supervision training hours in for ESFT Intensive In-Home, but is not currently offered for CE credit. CE credit.
