Workshop Description:

Clinical supervision is a core component of masters and doctoral-level training in mental health. While there are multiple models and theories of supervision, integration of trauma-informed frameworks is lacking. Graduate training programs may integrate trauma-informed and strength-based frameworks into discussion of client care, conceptualization of clinical cases, and treatment planning; however, these frameworks are equally as important and beneficial in the practice and delivery of clinical supervision.
This presentation aims to provide clinical supervisors with an understanding of the core features of the trauma-informed framework and strength-based approach, and how to apply these models to the supervisor-supervised relationship and development of clinical trainees. Clinical supervisors will also be encouraged to think how these models can also be applied at the systemic level within their respective organizations.

Learning Objectives:

After attending this intermediate-level presentation, participants will be able to:(1. List the core features of the trauma-informed framework and identify the benefits of applying this framework to clinical
supervision.
2. List the core features of the strength-based framework and identify the benefits of applying this framework to clinical supervision.
3. Identify practical applications of the trauma-informed framework and strength-based approach in one’s role as a clinical supervisor.
4. Identify practical organization-level applications of the trauma-informed framework and the implications on the overall structure and delivery of the clinical training program.

Program Standards and Goals:

This program meets APA’s continuing education Standard 1.3: Program content focuses on topics related to psychological practice, education, or research other than
application of psychological assessment and/or intervention methods that are supported by contemporary scholarship grounded in established research procedures.

This program meets APA’s continuing education Goal 3: Program will allow psychologists to maintain, develop, and increase competencies in order to improve services to the public and enhance contributions to the profession.
