Psychology of Supervision

* Fulfills Supervision requirement

Location: Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine Room 326 Evans Hall 4170 City Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19131 • 215-871-6100

In the past few years, the supervision competency has received increasing attention as a core competency of clinical supervision for practicing psychologists. Even as this workshop description is being written, the American Psychological Association haspublished the Guidelines for Clinical Supervision in Health Service Psychology (APA, 2015). The goal of this workshop is to provide participants with the basics of clinical supervision of mental health services within a cognitive behavioral context, so that they can be better prepared to assume administrative and clinical supervisory positions. The workshop will focus on describing essential tasks of clinical supervision, discussing the importance of the supervisory relationship in effective clinical supervision, identifying critical challenges in multicultural supervision and methods for effectively dealing with them, describing the basic structure of a cognitive behavioral model for supervision, and describing techniques for giving effective feedback to supervisees while identifying unhelpful techniques to avoid. The Guidelines for Clinical Supervision in Health Service Psychology will also be referenced in the workshop.

1. Describe 5 essential tasks of clinical supervision.

2. Discuss the importance of the supervisory relationship in effective clinical supervision.

3. Identify at least 5 critical challenges in multicultural supervision and methods for effectively dealing with them.

4. Describe the basic structure of a cognitive behavioral model for supervision.

5. List at least 5 techniques for giving effective feedback to supervisees and 5 unhelpful techniques to avoid.

How have the Changes in Psychoanalytic Theory Changed What We Do? (6.0 credits full day)

Act 48 available

Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine Room 326 Evans Hall 4170 City Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19131 • 215-871-6100

Psychoanalysis has undergone a paradigm shift to Relational Psychoanalysis.  What defines this shift and what does it mean in practice? How is it different and also the same? Philadelphia has entered the dialogue of these changes and is actively engaged in developing/contributing to the new advances in theory and practice.  Six years ago a new Institute was born, The Institute for Relational Psychoanalysis of Philadelphia (IRPP). What of the theory has been modified, thrown out, further refined and better understood?  What does the new theory mean for the way the therapist listens, engages, brings new emphasis to the change process?  Research has advanced new understandings of child development. How has this impacted how we view the change process itself? In the ever-evolving world of clinical work, integrating these advances has vitalized the work in new ways.  In the format of a daylong conference to explore these changes, we will be leaving room for active discussion with those attending, co-creating our learning process in the 'present moment' of the conference.  We will be illustrating with vignettes and clinical work to help bring the intellectual material alive in the here and now.  We would welcome your thoughts and questions to the ideas presented, and the panelists will dialogue across the worlds of child and adult relational psychoanalysis, establishing a contemporary understanding of psychoanalytic work.

1. Participants will compare commonly held assumptions about psychoanalysis and revise with information about current psychoanalytic research and practice. 

2. Participants will contextualize the paradigm shift in psychoanalysis in relevant historical background.          

3. Participants will be able to identify at least one way in which the questions the therapist asks herself from a contemporary relational frame differ from a more traditional approach.

4. Participants will be able to explain a relational understanding of the therapeutic action referred to as “enactment”.

 5. Participants will apply a contemporary psychoanalytic understanding of      trauma to a clinical child case.

6. Participants will demonstrate the primacy of working with parents in child relational work.

7. Participants will assess the connection between new understandings of how children develop to the revised conception of the change process in contemporary psychoanalytic therapy.

Temple University Fort Washington Campus Room #21 425 Commerce Drive, Fort Washington, PA 19034

Effective in 2015, the new Child Protective Services Law, enacted by Pennsylvania Legislature takes effect. There will be sweeping changes to all aspects of the law, from mandated reporting, to the definitions, of child abuse and neglect, to the rights of individuals accused of abuse, to the rights of children in abusive situations. Psychologists must stay current on all aspects of the law as this law will impact virtually everyone whose practice involves children, parents or families.

1, Educate Psychologists about the differences between the old and new Child Protective Services Act.
2. Teach the new mandated reporting criteria.
3.Teach the new definitions of "abuse " and "neglect"
4. Teach how psychologist privilege and confidentiality relates to the Child Protective Services Law
5. Define the circumstances when a client may obtain a Protection from Abuse Order for themselves or their children.
