Course Description

This cognitive behavioral training delineates the difference between administrative and clinical supervision. The training uses techniques created by Rollnick and Miller (Miller & Moyers, 2006) to help supervisors conceptualize training based on team member’s stage of development; readiness to improve performance, and sustained behavioral change. The training accomplishes this through the use of exercises and case studies that allows participants to practice newly acquired skills.  Using MI in clinical supervision goes beyond the four foci of supervision (administrative, evaluative, clinical, and supportive), it provides a forum for seasoned supervisors to increase their skills by taking an individualized approach that focuses on stages of developmental readiness for change.
