As a clinical supervisor you need to ensure quality service while helping clinicians develop their skills and style. To do this you can’t afford to be the same supervisor at Day 1 that you need to be at Day 100 or your supervisees will either stop learning or leave you behind. In this workshop we’ll discuss the 4 most common supervisory mistakes – focusing on the client rather than the clinician, ignoring the parallel process, spoonfeeding, and having unclear supervisory goals – and how to avoid them. We’ll also map out the characteristics, goals, tasks and dangers of each of the 4 stages of clinical development, and understand the 3 anxiety coping styles. You’ll learn how help clinicians develop their own unique style and gain insight into your own.

Workshop Objectives:

By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:

  1. Define spoonfeeding
  2. Identify the 4 stages of clinical development
  3. Describe 4 techniques for changing the emotional climate
  4. Describe the 5 common leadership styles
