In this segment of the series, we will discuss supervisory responsibilities as it relates to assessments of our supervisee and teach them about providing services in an ethical manner, adhering to confidentiality and protecting clients from harm, avoiding harmful relationships with clients, and maintaining/addressing competency while embracing different clinical techniques and approaches. We will practice working with supervisees who do not meet competency (substance use, sexual harassment) and the need for consultation and guidance in such situations. Finally, we will discuss transference/countertransference in both the supervisee/client relationship and the supervisee/supervisor relationship.

Upon completion of this training, participants will be able to:

Define how to effectively conduct assessments – Self-Assessment and Supervisee Assessment.

Examine and process stumbling blocks identified through the assessment process.

View role-play sessions on common supervisee issues such as burnout, attraction to a client, and countertransference.

Identify the core concepts of transference and countertransference in the counseling and supervisory relationship.

Implement practical tools that can be used in the session to address transference and countertransference via case study breakout sessions.
