Workshop Description: In this program, multiple aspects of the practice of competency-based clinical supervision will be described through the lens of the supervisor’s responsibilities and adherence to professional standards. A framework for systematic and intentional supervision with specific components will provide a structure for adherence to the highest duties of the supervisor: protecting the client, the supervisee, and the public, framing supervision multiculturally with cultural humility and respectful process, and systematically addressing and enhancing the competence of the supervisee. Emphasis will be on assessing readiness and current competencies, structuring the relationship, addressing strains and ruptures, providing ongoing directive feedback and support, targeted feedback and evaluation, gate-keeping and monitoring of competence to ensure protection of the public, and understanding and adhering to the Code of Conduct and the ethics of the profession in clinical supervision and practice.
