Program Summary:

Assessing (and developing) a supervisees clinical competencies is an inherent aspect of clinical supervision. This program reviews methods supervisors can take to intentionally incorporate assessment into supervision from a strengths-based perspective. Discussion will share recommendations for building a strong supervisory relationship that actively involves assessment and feedback. Types of clinical competencies to assess will be reviewed, as will methods for assessing those priorities, both from a developmental and multiculturally sensitive context. This program will also share and discuss possible strategies for discussing feedback and possible remediation in a non-threatening manner with supervisees. Clinical supervisors will leave this program feeling more confident in their ability to positively assess competencies and foster growth with less experienced clinicians.

Learning Objectives:

  • Participants will be able to identify key characteristics of a supervisory working alliance (SWA) that encourages non-threatening assessment and growth.

  • Participants will be able to describe which clinical skills they prioritize in assessing their supervisee’s competence.

  • Participants will be able to associate these clinical priorities with the types of assessment and feedback that best fit themselves and their supervisee.
