This two-day recording was developed for experienced, post-graduate, licensed clinicians who are interested in or have been providing clinical supervision. It is an intermediate level course designed to introduce practitioners to best practices for providing clinical supervision.

The presentation reviews models of clinical supervision and discusses the advantages and disadvantages of each model, details building blocks for the provision of competent supervision, discusses individual versus group supervision, suggests various observation models to enhance feedback, and demonstrates constructive feedback strategies.
