Clinical Supervision: LCSW Perspective CE Text-based Home Course

The purpose of clinical supervision is to enhance a social worker’s professional skills, knowledge, and attitudes in order to become competent in providing quality care to clients. Supervisors are held to the National Association of Social Workers (NASW) ethical guidelines and must be able to empathically and effectively work with challenges in supervision, such as associate anxiety, resistance, and their own learning curve in becoming a supervisor. This presentation provides the foundation for understanding the functions of supervision, the roles and responsibilities of supervisees and supervisors, and direction for meeting ethical standards and competencies. A variety of theoretical frameworks are described for use in individual, agency or group settings. Techniques for handling supervision challenges are included, such as supervisee anxiety and novice supervisory anxiety, conflict in the supervisory relationship, and supervisor burn-out.

Author: Kevin Fitzsimmons, M.S.W., LCSW

Target Audience: Introductory and Intermediate; LMFTs, Social Workers, LPCCs, Nurses, Substance Abuse Counselors, and other mental health clinicians.


Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  1. Identify the main functions of clinical supervision, particularly the roles and responsibilities of supervisee and supervisor.
  2. Understand the main NASW standards as they apply to supervision.
  3. Utilize appropriate treatment modalities and techniques for resolving ethical dilemmas associated with different kinds of supervision (e.g., individual, group, and live supervision modalities).
  4. Choose and blend as necessary, suitable theoretical models to address the needs of associates throughout supervision, and in meeting supervision challenges.

Clinical Supervision: Solution Focused Perspective CE Text-based Home Course

Solution-focused supervision, like solution-focused therapy, is a strength-based approach that assumes the inherent resiliency, creativity, and expertise in the supervisee. This model seeks to minimize issues of power between the supervisor and supervisee, to best help the supervisee become an autonomous professional. It uses many of the same techniques of solution focused therapy, with a strong emphasis on goal-setting, such that the supervisee understands the parameters upon which s/he will be evaluated as a supervisee. This presentation will provide techniques for integrating a solution-focused approach to setting up a supervision session, including how to establish a therapeutic alliance, how to use the interventions such as "miracle question" and "exceptions" and how to use the supervisee's insights and experience to set the tone of subsequent supervision and sessions with clients.
