Clinical Supervision Certification Program
This certification program will introduce participants to key aspects of clinical supervision, common themes, and recommendations to enhance practice through a trauma-informed lens.
This course is recommended for both new and experienced supervisors. It is recommended that participants have previously completed our core trauma training (Day 1 Understanding the Foundations of Trauma and Attachment, Day 2 Phase-Based Clinical Applications to Promote Healing and Integration of Trauma and Attachment Dysregulation and Day 3 Trauma Processing Experiential)
Providing clinical supervision through a trauma-informed lens allows for a shift in how we attune to our clients, consultees as well as ourselves. This workshop will teach participants how to apply trauma-informed principles within an individual, peer and group supervision context. Participants will be trained to facilitate supervision in a manner that promotes self-reflection, trauma-informed practice and growth in supervisees. This workshop will also introduce participants to restorative self-care practices that they can weave into their practice with clients, supervisees and in their own lives. We will also discuss effective techniques for discharging and preventing secondary traumatic stress when something sticks with us as the helper or supervisor.
The format of this 1-day training workshop will be a mix of didactic and experiential activities followed by 5 2-hour group consultations. Required readings and self-reflection exercises will be prescribed as part of a home study component of the training. Consultations will be focused on required readings, the applied supervision process and feedback around providing clinical supervision in a trauma-informed manner.
