As our field continues to grow and change, there is a need for more skilled supervisors acting as mentors to new professionals. In this workshop, participants will differentiate between supervision models as well as approach the models as research-practitioners, exploring which model best suits their practice. participants will discuss, develop, and practice supervision strategies through didactic work, large group discussions, and role plays. In addition, participants will explore ethical and legal situations that supervisors may encounter as well as the role of mentor-supervisors as anti-racist collaborators. Lastly, participants will have opportunities to start to implement their supervision skills into their practice and learn about evaluation strategies. 

This introductory workshop is intended for mental health professionals that are looking to become approved supervisors for others pursuing mental health licensure. 


After completing this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Differentiate between the different supervision models, theories, and practices of mental health supervision.
  • Demonstrate personal supervision model and strategies to enact in their own practice.
  • Understand the role of supervision in anti-racist collaboration as well as how they can personalize this role. 
  • Distinguish between legal or ethical concerns and have "next steps" on how to handle supervision concerns.
