Doctor of Psychology (PsyD) In Clinical Psychology Program
CLINICAL SEMINAR IV: THEORY AND PRACTICE OF SUPERVISION – INTENSIVE FORMAT
This distant learning 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 didactic sessions or reflection papers. 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 might apply this learning with their own supervisees. Specific goals of the course are to: 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.
Prerequisite: CLI FP800. Permission of the dean required.
