Clinical supervision is available at our Center for counselors and therapists working toward State licensure, and for experienced clinicians who want to consult with our expert staff.
Numerous opportunities are available for supervision and consultation:
- Supervision for Therapists Seeking Licensure. Clinical supervision is provided for clinical social workers, mental health counselors, and marriage and family therapists. Weekly or biweekly supervision sessions generally meet the requirements of the State of Florida (100 hours of supervision are required for each 1500 hours of psychotherapy). Clinical supervision is tailored to the needs of each therapist and generally includes the clinical review of current cases, a focus on professional ethics, discussion of clinical methods, counseling theories, and relevant research findings, and an exploration of the therapist-client relationship.
- Supervision for Licensed Therapists. Individual and group supervision for more experienced, licensed therapists may be provided on a regular (weekly or biweekly) or as-needed basis. This type of therapist supervision includes a clinical review of challenging cases, with a special focus on the therapist-client relationship.
- Peer Consultation Groups. We currently operate 2 peer supervision groups at our Center. Each group is held once a month, on Fridays at noon. The groups include psychiatrists, counselors and therapists with a wide range of specialties and backgrounds. Cases are presented for feedback by the group, and clinical topics are presented and discussed. These groups also offer an excellent opportunity for networking with other clinicians.
- Consultation and Training for Therapists. Training programs include workshops, group and individual supervision sessions designed to address specific clinical issues. Topics include men’s issues, relationships and couples counseling, the treatment of anxiety disorders, mindfulness and Eastern approaches to psychotherapy, solution-oriented brief therapy, hypnotherapy, treatment of addictions, managing clinically complex and challenging cases, and the management of transference and counter transference.
