THOUGHT LEADERSHIP SERIES
Friday, JANUARY 27, 2023
CST via Zoom
Psychologist, psychoanalyst and author Nancy McWilliams, PhD, ABPP will contextualize clinical supervision historically, exploring some less-frequently-measured areas of supervisory competence.
About the Presentation:
Both the American Psychological and the American Psychiatric Associations have recently advocated for specific courses in supervision for their trainees. Good supervision has been described in terms of specific competences or progressive skill sets, often measured via symptom reduction in the supervisee’s clients. However, there has been less attention given to general developmental goals such as overall professional and personal growth in the trainee, as well as to areas of maturation that constitute progress in both therapist and patient. In this complimentary talk, psychologist, psychoanalyst and author Nancy McWilliams, PhD, ABPP will contextualize clinical supervision historically, exploring some less-frequently-measured areas of supervisory competence. This virtual presentation aims to be relevant to the practical and professional needs of both supervisors and supervisees.
Following a 30-minute Q&A at the conclusion of this talk, clinicians will have the option of earning 1 Continuing Education credit upon successful completion of a course evaluation.
