Description of Workshop:
Whether it is a small office or large organization, the LPC is often asked to provide supervision for associate level staff. The needs of the organization are not always in alignment with the needs for good supervision. The workshop will examine these conflicts, and ways to manage them professionally and ethically. The workshop will use break-outs and group discussion to explore the conflicts and talk about ways to manage them. Good practice of supervision is possible while meeting the needs of the business.
The first part of the workshop will be lecture and discussion around supervision: Purpose of Supervision, providing supervision, ethics of supervision, including reference to the Ethics codes for supervision, and the Law in Georgia, and the responsibilities of supervisor for supervisee and their clients. The second part will discuss the needs of organizations, and what sorts of demands placed on therapists to provide supervision. In the third part, we will read discuss various scenarios that they will bring back to the large group to present.
