A key activity of clinical supervision is teaching and there are many methods for taking on the teacher role in supervisions.

Great work doc students.

The presenters of this workshop were wonderful but course material was dry!

Excellent workshop.

Advanced techniques, watching actual video and discussion supervision points. Good for brand new supervisors.

Addressing eating disorders in the public school setting.

Telehealth. Reasons for low ratings were discussed during the class. Also more clearly discussed with Kate out of session. Please increase presentation of material vs. open-ended questions of class.

Great job! One of the best supervision workshop I’ve attended. Clearly presented, good research and expertise, engaging and interesting.

We need more time to talk about the practical tools that Dusty presented at the very end. As facilitators, you used a lot of really great counseling skills. I wonder if it would save time if you didn’t reflect, paraphrase & summarize after every person’s comment. That seemed a little repetitive and unnecessary at times. A little more direct teaching would be fine, balanced of course with the interaction from the group.

I absolutely appreciated the way all 3 presenters utilized the skills and expertise of each individual participating in training.

I appreciated being asked “what was your experience with that” or “what was that like for you?” It made me think.

Many of the questions to group were asked to current counselors supervising which I think was great info but left others out. More experience from presenters. Appreciated energy and humor for presenters, the second day went quicker than expected.
