Professional Psychotherapy Supervision Group

For clinicians early in their psychotherapy practices, a professional supervision group provides a forum for deepening the understandings of client assessment, case conceptualization, treatment planning, and therapeutic process. Those engaged in psychotherapy do not practice in isolation, so a supervision group becomes a natural format to accomplish professional socialization and increase learning.

This supervision group will include multidisciplinary counselors and therapists who are licensed practitioners in early and mid-career trajectories. Participants will engage in a collaborative learning experience in an experiential atmosphere, which encourages self-responsibility and increases mutuality in the therapeutic endeavor.

The group commitment is one year.
