This course fulfills the training requirement mandated by the Virginia Board of Social Work to provide clinical supervision for LCSW candidates. The Virginia Board of Counseling recently updated their regulations for LPC and LMFT licensure, however, now stating:

◾For LPC and LMFT licensure, your supervisor must hold an active, unrestricted license as a LPC or LMFT only, in the jurisdiction where the supervision is being provided. At least 100 of the supervision hours must be supervised by a LPC. **Previously approved supervisors who are substance abuse treatment practitioners, school psychologists, clinical psychologists, clinical social workers, or psychiatrists can provide supervision until August 24, 2017.

During this highly interactive seminar, attendees will engage with other professionals to strengthen their foundation of today’s best practice knowledge and enhance their skills to function effectively in the critical role of clinical supervisor. Day 1 explores the dynamics of Group Supervision, while Day 2 focuses on the ethical divide of digital technology in Supervision.

Day 1: Crafting Successful Group Supervision: Theory, Practice, & Reality (7 CE Hours, 2 hours Ethics)

Conducting clinical supervision in a group setting brings richness and a different energy to the process than one-on-one supervision. Do you have the tools to be successful? You have the supervisees, and a site to meet, but what comes next? Do you have the skills, the competencies, and the knowledge of today’s best practice models?

◾Review the impact of the new regulations

◾Review best practice regarding contracting, record-keeping and regulatory compliance

◾Review ethical implications for consideration with Group processes

◾Examine common challenges to prepare for, including transference and counter-transference in group settings, confidentiality considerations, and how to manage group processes

◾Review specific Group Supervision models to firm your foundation including Interactional, Competency-Based, Task and Reflective methodologies of practice

Day 2: Mastering the Ethical Divide of Digital Technology and Clinical Social Work Supervision (7 CE Hours, Includes 7 Hours Ethics)

Evolving challenges transverse social work ethics and practice. While implications exist for all practitioners, digital technology has brought heightened risk for clinical social work supervisors. Ethical dilemmas abound from conflicts of interest and dual relationships, to state to state disparities of licensure scope, plus privacy and confidentiality. Effective supervisory oversight is essential for managing the current ethical disrupters of:

• Technology proficiency

• Appropriate use of social media and electronic communication

• Mandatory duty to warn situations,

• Industry demands for interstate practice and licensure portability

Professional liability for both the supervisor and supervisee is paramount. How does one effectively juggle all these moving parts?

Engage in an innovation, interactional, and informative seven hour training that blends new knowledge, with industry scenarios and application of the latest professional resources, including the 2017 Technology and Social Work Practice (NASW, ASWB, CSWE, CSWA, 2017) and the NASW Code of Ethics. With change the only constant in our industry, can you afford to miss out?

Learning Objectives:

1. Identify current ethical disrupters to conducting clinical social work supervision.

2. Discuss ethical implications of liability in engaging digital technology for social work supervision.
