This INTERMEDIATE workshop is designed to introduce participants to fast- evolving best practices of supervision and to enhance supervisory competence through experiential exercises. The workshop includes current research on supervision efficacy, optimal supervision and parameters of competency based supervision with emphasis on empirical support. Multicultural competence, alliance development and repair, legal and ethical issues and risk management techniques, effective evaluation, managing supervisees who do not meet performance criteria, and strategies for self-care are highlighted. Hands-on exercises, vignettes and role-plays will be used to illustrate supervisor-supervisee issues.
