Clinical Supervision: Solution Focused Perspective Text-based Home Course (3 CE) - Printed Version

In stock

Solution-focused supervision, like solution-focused therapy, is a strength-based approach that assumes the inherent resiliency, creativity, and expertise in the supervisee. This model seeks to minimize issues of power between the supervisor and supervisee, to best help the supervisee become an autonomous professional. It uses many of the same techniques of solution focused therapy, with a strong emphasis on goal-setting, such that the supervisee understands the parameters upon which s/he will be evaluated as a supervisee. This presentation will provide techniques for integrating a solution-focused approach to setting up a supervision session, including how to establish a therapeutic alliance, how to use the interventions such as "miracle question" and "exceptions" and how to use the supervisee's insights and experience to set the tone of subsequent supervision and sessions with clients.
