Barry University School of Social Work is offering a 4-hour webinar that will meet criteria for current qualified supervisors to update their required credentials for FS chapter 491.

Learning Objectives : 4 hours

Participants Will:

  1. Recognize historical trends and approaches for providing clinical supervision
  2. Review important state mandates and requirements for providing supervision and monitoring competent and ethical practice
  3. Recognize the connections between client experiences of trauma and the presentation of clinical distress
  4. Gain experience in specific supervisory techniques and skills for enhancing the professional narrative and identity of supervisees.
