This program will provide 4 hours of continuing education. This program is co-sponsored by NJPA and Seton Hall University. NJPA is approved by the American Psychological Association to sponsor continuing education for psychologists. NJPA maintains responsibility for this program and its content.

Program Narrative: This conference will build upon the foundation of a completed doctoral program in applied psychology by moving attendees beyond their training in clinical supervision theory, research, and practice toward a more nuanced understanding of when clinical supervision goes awry, with particular emphasis on competency-based supervision with diverse supervisees. Attendees will become familiar with the most current clinical supervision and training research on this topic, both in terms of the nature and prevalence of harmful and inadequate supervision as well as the consequences to supervisees and their clients. As an experiential workshop, participants will learn how to identify harmful and inadequate supervision and to distinguish among these two related supervision experiences. In addition, they will have the opportunity to practice responding to harmful and inadequate supervision using innovative skills and methods for both protecting both supervisee and client welfare.

Learning Objectives: 

At the conclusion of the workshop, participants will be able to: 

  1. Describe the difference between inadequate and harmful supervision.
  2. Describe at least three examples of inadequate supervision. 
  3. Describe at least three examples of harmful supervision.
  4. Describe two consequences of harmful supervision
  5. Critique extant research regarding diversity issues in clinical supervision 
  6. Utilize two strategies for competency-based supervision with diverse supervisees. 
  7. List three areas for future research on harmful and inadequate with diverse supervisees.
