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).

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.

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.

Cultural Considerations in Clinical Supervision by Dr. Anne Marshall
  • Presenter: Dr. Anne Marshall
  • Language: English
  • Location: Online
  • Cost: $25 CCPA members | $35 non members *Plus applicable taxes
  • # of CECs: 1

Webinar Description:Culture is a part of everything we are and everything we do. Cultural beliefs, awareness, knowledge, and experiences have a significant impact on all aspects of counselling; from the moment we connect with clients, we and they are enacting culture on multiple and intersecting levels. Gender, age, ethnic heritage, economics, education, sexual orientation, ability, social location, and other cultural factors affect the therapeutic alliance and the counselling process. Exploring these cultural considerations is particularly important in clinical supervision. In this webinar, Anne will outline several aspects of a cultural approach to clinical supervision.  It is not possible to have knowledge and experience of all cultural differences, however, a number of key principles and strategies can guide supervisors and supervisees to effectively support cultural diversity in both counselling and supervision contexts.

Presenter: Dr. Anne Marshall
Dr. Anne Marshall is a Professor of Counselling Psychology and Director of the Centre for Youth & Society at the University of Victoria, Canada.  A registered psychologist, her clinical and research work focuses on well-being, transitions, and mental health in cultural and community contexts, particularly Indigenous communities and marginalized youth.

  • # of CECs: 1

Webinar Description:Supervision, as a distinct specialty in psychotherapy, continues to grow and mature.

As supervisors gain experience, they begin to infuse supervision with their own style and creativity. In this webinar, we will explore ways to include creativity techniques from areas such as play, art, drama, and storytelling to enhance engagement in the supervisory process.

ADDRESSING Diversity in Supervision: Opportunities and Challenges by Judy Chew
  • Presenter: Judy Chew
  • Language: English
  • Location: Online
  • Cost: $25 CCPA members | $35 non members *Plus applicable taxes
  • # of CECs: 1

Webinar Description:Supervisors are guided by an ethical imperative to promote multicultural awareness, knowledge, and skills in training new professionals. Research indicates that simply having an appreciation of diversity in the provision of supervision is insufficient. Multicultural supervision attends to culture and diversity issues as core components. However, much attention continues to be drawn to the acquisition of multicultural competencies (“a way of doing” tasks in counselling). Increasingly, there are concerns about the missing piece – a multicultural orientation (“way of being”) as a core competence in supervision. Effective work with people of diverse identities first requires our own reflexivity and cultural self-assessment. This webinar examines feminist multicultural supervision and the centrality of “cultural humility”. A model for conceptualizing diversity domains is offered along with practical exercises and strategies.

Presenter: Judy Chew
Judy Chew, is a registered psychologist and Training Coordinator at the Counselling Centre, University of Calgary, where she also holds an associate adjunct position in the Division of Education Studies in Psychology. Her clinical practice, scholarly endeavors, and training workshop/seminars underscore the important competencies in counselling individuals from diverse backgrounds.

  • # of CECs: 1

  • # of CECs: 1

Webinar Description:Clinician self-disclosure remains a topic that is often misunderstood and controversial in the training of mental health practitioners. There are common criticisms for self-disclosing. These include the negative impact on the working alliance, the nature and course of therapeutic work, and the boundaries between client and trainee. At the same time, an emerging body of literature and evidence affirms the potential therapeutic benefits of the informed use of self-disclosure. The supervisory alliance plays a critical role in fostering professional and ethical practice in a trainee’s development.
