12:30pm-1:30pm: The Ethics of Clinical Supervision CE Event (1 CE included)

• This event is open to any community member seeking CEs.

According to the American Counseling Association, “Counselor supervisors, trainers, and educators should aspire to foster meaningful and respectful professional relationships and to maintain appropriate boundaries with supervisees and students in both face-to-face and electronic formats. They have theoretical and pedagogical foundations for their work; have knowledge of supervision models; and aim to be fair, accurate, and honest in their assessments of counselors, students, and supervisees.”

In order to be effective Clinical Supervisors, we have to have strong knowledge of the ethics of being an effective supervisor. Ethics is the foundation of all that we do as supervisors, clinicians, and educators.

In this presentation, Dr. Moore Reynolds will assist Clinical Supervisors in determining best practices between supervisor and supervisee, and supervisee and client. Participants will also identify the ethical and professional guidelines of Clinical Supervision. Finally, Dr. Reynolds will also discuss the ethical obligation that Clinical Supervisors must take care of their own health and mental health in order to be an effective Clinical Supervisor.
