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. A common problem in intensive, in-home treatment is therapists’ over-reliance on structured activities and games with children, and the tendency to leave caregivers out. Methods are provided for using videotapes in supervision to help therapists learn how to talk to children more naturally and more effectively. 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’ session videotapes with them foster clinical self awareness
  2. Describe strategies for helping therapists talk to children naturally without structured games.   
  3. Identify the types of reflective questions that best facilitate therapists skills in attuning to key interactional patterns
  4. Identify strategies for motivating therapists to videotape and show their work in supervision
  5. Describe the importance of maintaining a collaborative stance with supervisees when viewing their videotapes
  6. Demonstrate a strengths-based feedback approach.
