Exploring the Complexity of Supervision Through a New Lens

A supervision workshop for Marylhurst University Art Therapy Fieldwork and Practicum Supervisors.

This workshop is designed to demonstrate how supervisors can adopt a problem-solving technique to support interns as they explore options for working with challenging clients. The cognitively based technique proposes the idea that alternative ways for interns to view client work can be both modeled and developed. The structure for this development is a blend of cognitive skills and emotional intelligence. The idea for this workshop was inspired by an article in the Journal of Humanities & Social Sciences. Eckstein, D.,Li, C., Lin, Y.,Serres, S. (2008). Six thinking hats for group supervisors with counselor interns. Journal of Humanities & Social Sciences, 2, 2.

Upon completing this course, participants will be able to:

1. Gain an alternative model for clinical supervision practice
2. Determine which supervisory style is most aligned with their practice
3. Identify an applicable case for application of the proposed model
4. Explore the case application process through discussion and experiential group work
