The Group Supervision is limited to 10 participants and is a closed group process for the duration of the 4 weekly sessions.
This group supervision experience allows clinicians to explore aspects critical in providing mental health care in the private sector taking into account the unusual circumstances of today and preparing for your work tomorrow. Each session will focus on a particular aspect related to private practice; such as, documentation, treatment, and ethical considerations. This group is supervised by clinicians who are trained and experienced in working with children, teens, young adults, adults, and families. Each session will provide an opportunity for participants to share a case they are working with and receive feedback. The group will meet for 2 hours each week for 4 weeks. Each participant will evaluate the process and content of each session as it pertains to them in their clinical work.

First Hour of Session: We will examine the topic assigned for each session in-depth, including relevant research, examples in clinical practice, along with providing opportunities for group discussion and case application. Topics include those critical for counselor development in the field of private practice. This is an opportunity for counselors to share their expertise with the group and to gain resources for use in private practice.
Second Hour of Session: Each clinician will have an opportunity to share a specific case they have brought for review. Participants will offer to present problems, assessment/screenings, treatment plans, and current status. These cases will be offered to the group for review and recommendations. This allows each counselor to obtain valuable feedback on specific aspects of their work, and to offer clinical support to other counselors.
