CE Course Description

Supervisors are teachers, coaches, consultants, mentors, evaluators, and administrators; you provide support, encouragement, and education to staff while addressing an array of psychological, interpersonal, physical, and spiritual issues of clients.

This course focuses on the teaching, coaching, consulting, and mentoring functions of clinical supervisors.  This particular course contains valuable information and is pertinent to clinical supervisors in 'all' fields even though the research and clinical findings discussed in this 'best practice' manual are referring to the field of substance abuse counseling. This course is recommended for Social Workers and Therapists seeking to become supervisors in California.
