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

One of the challenges in both training and supervision is choosing effective methods for developing clinicians’ EcoSystemic case conceptualization. This workshop gives focus to a brief supervision tool, the DOC-F, for reviewing supervisee case write-ups and providing feedback on the essential skills related to ESFT case conceptualization.  A brief overview and explanation of each of the items on the DOC-F is provided. Excerpts from case conceptualizations are used as opportunities for supervisors to practice DOC-F ratings and to promote inter-rater reliability.  The DOC-F is discussed in the context of avoiding some of the more common errors in supervision.

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

  1. Describe three common mistakes in clinical supervision
  2. Describe the rationale for the DOC-F and how use it to enhance EcoSystemic thinking
  3. Use the DOC-F to practice rating case conceptualizations of supervisees.

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.
