Event Description

As more licensed mental health practitioners embrace the role of clinical supervisor, there is a need for increased guidance, training, and consultation on the unique aspects of supervisory experiences and responsibilities.  This introduction presentation will review Utah state laws, professional ethics, and clinical guidelines related to the practice of supervision.  Participants will be encouraged to identify how to practice supervision with legal compliance and ethical best practices, reflect on their supervisee relationship, consider practice and/or policy modifications they may make to peer consultation related to their supervising responsibilities.  The presentation will include any relevant updates from the 2024 legislative session related to supervision.  This course is intended for psychologists, mental health counselors, marriage and family therapists and social workers who are at a beginner skill level.  There are no known conflicts of interests for this workshop.

Learning Objectives:

a.  Participants will recognize the extent to which clinical supervision is effective in producing positive outcomes for supervisees and for clients.

b.  Participants will be able to identify supervision models and components that promote supervisee use of evidence-based interventions with clients.

c.  Participants will be able to identify ways to prevent risk of harm in clinical supervision.
