The focus of this training is on improving supervisory skills that help the practitioner provide higher quality services. The training will cover five key areas: case specific guidance and direction; state mandated over-site of functional assessments and treatment plans; supervision relative to case load size and workloads; evaluation of practitioner skills and competencies; and, the provision of training for practitioner skills and competencies. Empowerment, self-efficacy, recovery, wellness, person-centeredness, and client choice are meaningless unless we make them meaningful through the services we provide. Each of these concepts will be considered as we discuss each aspect of clinical supervision.
