This series counts toward required annual training hours in Family Based Mental Health Services, but is not currently available for CE credit.

This training explains the reasons clinical supervision is more effective when based on actual observation of treatment, such as reviewing videotapes of therapists’ sessions. Strategies are provided for motivating therapists to take the risk of showing their clinical work, highlighting the importance of being collaborative and strengths based. Supervisors are encouraged to be facilitative, and to use reflective questions, a method that helps supervisees develop their critical thinking skills.

As a result of attending this educational activity, participants will be able to:

  1. Explain how reviewing therapists’ videotapes with them fosters clinical self-awareness
  2. Identify the types of reflective questions that best facilitate therapists skills in attuning to key interactional patterns
  3. Identify strategies for motivating therapists to videotape and show their work in supervision.
  4. Describe the importance of maintaining a collaborative, strength-based stance with supervisees when viewing their videotapes.

This is an intermediate level course. The target audience is behavioral health supervisors working within Pennsylvania’s Family Based program. This is a live synchronous distance learning activity conducted in real time, allowing for simultaneous participation of participants and instructors from different locations.
