The focus of this workshop will be on method - what the supervisor does in interactions with staff. Essential skills in communication, relationship, and group leadership will be described and illustrated. Participants will be able to share their own experiences.

Issues to be raised may include supervising defensive staff members, staff apathy and resistance to change, helping staff to develop skills for professional impact dealing with other staff, and addressing staff primary and secondary trauma. A parallel process will be identified in that the way supervisors deal with staff will be viewed as modeling for staff how to relate to clients. The idea that more is “caught” than “taught” will be central. The workshop will also address supervision of Evidenced-Based Practice (e.g., MI, SFP and CBT) in an integrative rather than prescriptive manner so as to increase E.B.P. sustainability in the setting.
