Pitfalls of Supervision: Managing the Supervisor Countertransference & Building on Supervisee Resistance CLICK HERE
The supervision experience can be one of the richest experiences within the counseling practice. Supervision aims to provide support & fuel a career long ethical framework for clinicians. Positive supervision experiences leave an imprint on the healthy clinician and can translate to clinical care with patients and ethical practices with interdisciplinary teams.

This presentation will create a transparent dialogue among those responsible for providing ethically sound supervision within a challenging process. This presentation will identify issues raised by supervisees when the supervision process becomes a dreaded process.
