Dennis Debiak, Psy.D.
Early in the history of the field of psychology, it was assumed that proficiency as a psychologist meant competence as a clinical supervisor. Nowadays, professional standards require specific training in supervision. This workshop will introduce participants to APA’s new (2015) Guidelines for Clinical Supervision in Health Service Psychology. The interaction of the multiple dimensions of the personal and professional identities of the supervisor and supervisee in the particular supervisory context will be discussed. A collaborative approach to supervision will be presented, in which mutuality between supervisor and supervisee is fostered in the context of the asymmetrical supervisory relationship. Finally, the PA State Board of Psychology's recently revised requirements for supervisors of postdoctoral residents will be reviewed.
Participation in this program will enable you to:
1) Summarize APA’s Guidelines for Clinical Supervision in Health Service Psychology.
2) Apply a collaborative approach to the supervisory relationship.
3) Describe the PA State Board of Psychology's recently revised requirements for supervisors of postdoctoral residents.
3 APA CE credit hours will be provided to licensed mental health professionals.
