Advanced Topics in Clinical Supervision

This intermediate level supervision course covers the legal, ethical and clinical aspects of supervision, including cutting edge issues of boundaries in supervision and cyber-supervision. In addition to describing the requirements of supervision, this course also presents supervision as a dynamic process, which engages both supervisor and supervisee in interpersonal processes over a period of time and through certain developmental phases. This course is one of the few courses where attention is paid to boundaries, multiple loyalties, and multiple relationships that are inherent in the supervisor-supervisee relationship.

This course is comprised of three audio recordings (transcripts provided) and ten articles. The first recording is Dr. Zur being interviewed on the "Art of Supervision" and includes a review of the phases of supervision. The second audio recording is ethicist-expert Dr. Michael Donner being interviewed on different forms of supervision and what constitutes effective and ethical supervision practices. The third audio recording is on "Supervision and Boundaries" and covers issues of gifts, self-disclosure, and other relevant considerations, as well as a discussion on the complex unavoidable multiple loyalties and multiple relationships that are part of supervisory relationships. The second section starts with an article by renowned supervision-expert, Dr. Carol Falender, on the "Competency-Based Approach" and also includes an article by Robert Taibbi, LCSW on the stages of supervision with a review of the models of supervision. In the third section supervision is reviewed from a Gestalt-Humanistic point of view and from Dr. Gendlin's Focus-based approach. The next section presents material on the rapidly growing field of cyber-supervision, online supervision or TeleSupervision. The fifth section presents the codes of ethics of major mental health organizations regarding supervision training and practices for supervisors and supervisees and presents CA requirements for supervisor training and practice. Additional resources and references are provided for further study, but they are not part of the course.
