Clinical Supervision: LCSW Perspective Online Text-based Home Course (6 CE)

In stock

The purpose of clinical supervision is to enhance a social worker’s professional skills, knowledge, and attitudes in order to become competent in providing quality care to clients. Supervisors are held to the National Association of Social Workers (NASW) ethical guidelines and must be able to empathically and effectively work with challenges in supervision, such as associate anxiety, resistance, and their own learning curve in becoming a supervisor. This presentation provides the foundation for understanding the functions of supervision, the roles and responsibilities of supervisees and supervisors, and direction for meeting ethical standards and competencies. A variety of theoretical frameworks are described for use in individual, agency or group settings. Techniques for handling supervision challenges are included, such as supervisee anxiety and novice supervisory anxiety, conflict in the supervisory relationship, and supervisor burn-out.
