The Next Generation of Clinical Supervision: A Blended Model of Clinical Supervision

Sponsored by New Hampshire Alcohol & Drug Abuse Counselors Association

A 24-hour training event with Alan Lyme, LISW, MAC 
May 3-6, 2021 (4-Day Training)
8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. (registration begins at 8:00 a.m.)

PRESENTATION: Treatment programs are changing constantly with new diagnostic and patient placement standards. The bar of credential requirements is always being raised. Clinical supervision provides the most important resource available for training, management decision-making and quality assurance. Supervision is also a critical element of the counseling process, enhancing client outcome and employee satisfaction. The Blended Model of Supervision was developed by Dr. David Powell to address the changes in the substance abuse field. This course will address these changes: bridging the gap between mental health and addictions; new ethical and legal standards and requirements; working in a managed care world; and a specific focus on the use of Motivational Interviewing in supervision. Additional approaches such as Reflective Supervision will be compared and contrasted. This course will examine the credentialing requirements for clinical supervisory certification and will include training in ethics. It addresses the four performance domains of ICRC: assessment/evaluation; counselor development; management/administration, and professional responsibilities. Participants will be aided in forming their own model of supervision as well as being oriented to a range of supervision models and techniques.  As a result of attending this training participants will be able to:

  • Describe their model of supervision;
  • Articulate the latest ethical principles for working in a managed care environment;
  • Define the basic skills and techniques of motivational interviewing based supervision;
  • Define at least ten characteristics of three levels of counselor development and supervision approaches with each level;
  • Identify five problems in supervision and procedures to overcome these obstacles;
  • Demonstrate knowledge and skills in the use of technology in clinical supervision.
  • Articulate an understanding of the contemplative model of supervision and develop an implementation plan for integration into their own model.

Note :  Participants should be managers, supervisors or administrators in treatment programs, or interested in becoming clinical supervisors.  This course has been approved by many states for CCS crediting by the I.C.R.C. for the clinical supervisor credential.
