Supervision: Creating Counsellor Reflective Communities by David Paré
  • Presenter: David Paré, Ph.D.
  • Language: english
  • Location: online
  • Cost: $25 CCPA members | $35 non members *Plus applicable taxes
  • # of CECs: 1

Webinar Description:The opportunity to reflect deeply on practice with colleagues is not only a comforting support, but also a fertile learning opportunity. Unfortunately, the opportunity rarely arises in workplaces, where supervision too often happens on the fly, and case conferences forfeit, open-ended exploration in favour of a quest for single answers. Reflective communities offer a generative alternative. They bring together practitioners from diverse work settings for ongoing sharing of practice and theory using variations on reflecting team formats to create safety and encourage multiple viewpoints. David will share his experience creating these forums for peer supervision and professional development, highlighting some key learnings based on years of collaborations with counsellors in the Ottawa area. Some familiarity with reflecting team traditions is helpful but not necessary for this webinar.

He is author of The Practice of Collaborative Counselling and Psychotherapy (2013) and editor (with Tom Strong) of Furthering Talk: Advances in the Discursive Therapies (2004) and (with Glen Larner) Collaborative Practice in Psychology and Therapy (2004).

  • # of CECs: 1

Webinar Description:Small group reflecting processes developed by Tom Andersen (“the reflecting team” and Michael White (“outsider witness teams”) provide rich possibilities for group supervision. The adherence to a structured format increases safety by ensuring reflections unfold in a spirit of supportive curiosity and tentativeness. In this webinar, participants will learn how to structure group supervision sessions using elements of reflecting team and outsider witnessing team processes. David will present example of reflections intended to serve two key purposes: 1. Acknowledgment of the practitioner sharing their work; 2. Generation of multiple possibilities with regard to the “case” which is the focus of the sharing. Some familiarity with reflecting team traditions is helpful but not necessary for this webinar.

Ethical and Legal Considerations in Clinical Supervision of the Practice of Counselling and Psychotherapy by Beth Robinson and Jeff Landine

  • # of CECs: 1

Webinar Description:There is a growing consensus in the field of counselling and psychotherapy that recognition of clinical supervision as a specialty area of practice is long overdue. Competence as a clinical supervisor is not something that is typically developed through graduate education and training nor does it automatically arise from experience as a practicing counsellor or psychotherapist.  In this webinar Drs Robinson and Landine will distinguish between ethical and legal obligations in clinical supervision, explore ethical considerations related to informed consent, boundaries of competence, relational boundaries, record keeping, remedial intervention, and self-care, among other topics.  They will promote awareness of approaches aimed at managing risk and minimizing liability in clinical supervision and will identify some clinical supervision contraindications. There will ample time allotted to respond to questions related to the ethical and legal aspects of supervision.
