“Clinical Supervision: What Are Early Career Practitioners Looking For?”

It is well documented that effective clinical supervision improves the quality of clinical care, decreases burnout among staff while increasing a staff’s subjective sense of professionalism, and lessens the likelihood of ethics complaints. It also effectively orients early career professionals to the field. This workshop will focus on supervision with early career professionals, building off of their own words in what they seek in a supervisor.
