ADVANCED CLINICAL SEMINAR IV: THEORY AND PRACTICE IN SUPERVISION
This year long course is designed to introduce students to the supervisory role of the professional psychologist. While supervision is the primary focus in the seminar, students are encouraged to take actual case experiences that concern them and bring them into the seminar for mutual clinical growth. Discussing how their on-site supervisor dealt with the case will lead to exploring various other ways the case might have been dealt with, thus enhancing their understanding of the complex content of supervision and how they then might apply this learning with their own "supervisees." Specific goals of the course are to: articulate one’s own experience as a supervisee as a way to understand one’s progress from their past and present role of supervisee to their future role of supervisor; review the relevant theoretical and research literature about supervision; become familiar with supervision techniques; become familiar with how supervision theory and practice is relevant to clinical consultation; and begin to practice supervisory skills by “supervising” a junior colleague.
