Description: The supervisory relationship presents some unique challenges and opportunities involving effective use of self. Supervisors are frequently confronted with situations that my evoke strong personal reactions. Attendees will develop a meaningful and accessible way to conceptualize, apply, and describe the process of "use of self" to themselves and their supervisees. This course uses didactic input and experiential learning, and attendees will explore how the whole person of the supervisor can be effectively engaged in the way supervision is provided. Strategies for managing obstacles will be introduced, including self-insight, self-integration, empathy, anxiety management, and conceptualizing skills.
