Symbolism & Gifts: Creative Strategies For Supervisors To Engage Supervisees In Discussion Of Clinician Development

Room 210

This presentation will provide a rationale for using creative activities in supervision to enhance supervisees’ self-reflection on their clinical development and identity. Presenters will demonstrate interactive and creative strategies that can be used in individual or group supervision that supports professional growth and insight. Attendees will also learn how to modify the strategies to meet their own supervisees’ needs.

Guiding The Child Within; Play Therapy Supervision Within A Trauma Context

Room 211

This presentation will highlight the importance of supervision for clinicians who utilize play therapy in clinical practice with individuals who have been impacted by trauma. Throughout this experiential workshop, participants will increase knowledge about supervisory dynamics within the play therapy model. In addition, participants will gain insight regarding secondary trauma for supervisees and skills to assist the supervisee through the supervision process.

Stopping The Brain Drain: The Power Of Clinical Supervision To Foster Vigor And Prevent Burnout In Supervisees

Room 213

Clinical supervision and training can be a physically, emotionally and cognitively exhausting experience for many trainees. Growing evidence indicates that clinical supervisors, and the alliance they build with trainees, may be the key to reducing trainee exhaustion. This presentation will review the current literature on trainee burnout and vigor and discuss what supervisors can do to help.

An Existential Analytic Approach To Supervision Consultation

Room 214

In this presentation we will discuss how the unacknowledged influence of supervisors’ lived experience can have unintended and inadvertent impacts such as the breakdown of supervisory relationships and the disempowerment of supervisees and how engagement in existential analytic supervision consultation can potentially minimize negative impacts and enhance the supervisory endeavor.

Rita Glover, Ph.D., Dublin City University

The Exchange Of Peer Feedback By Counselor Trainees In Group Supervision: Implications For Research And Practice

Room 215

We will discuss findings from a mixed-methods study of peer feedback shared by counselors-in-training finishing their internship in clinical mental health counseling. This includes describing the categories of peer feedback that we found and how this feedback was received by the group members. Implications for researching and practicing group supervision will be discussed.
