If you're just starting out as a supervisor, are you hoping to hone your skills and get up to speed quickly so you can help develop supervisees into competent and capable clinicians?

You'll get loads of practical, research-based insight on building a strong alliance, working through common problems in supervision, developing multicultural competence, and avoiding ethical pitfalls.

Dr. Lois Ehrmann will help you develop your supervisees' skills by sharing up-to-date research on the most effective approaches and interventions, plus real-world examples and demonstrations drawn from her 18+ years of experience as a clinical supervisor.

End this online course with the tools and knowledge you need to succeed as a clinical supervisor.
