Clinical & Generalist Supervision within the Agency Context: Addressing Role Conflicts
12951 Weaver Lake Rd
Maple Grove, MN 55369
The practice of clinical and generalist supervision is altered and affected when it occurs in an agency setting. Supervisor/supervisee relationships change from collegial to more hierarchical, therapeutic discussions, and decisions are influenced by potential fiscal ramifications. In addition, various other supervisory duties erode the time set aside for supervision on clinical issues. Clinical and generalist supervisors are left feeling conflicted, knowing they need to both attend to administrative duties and also support clients and staff with clinical issues. This interactive workshop offers participants the opportunity to reflect on practicing clinical and generalist supervision while also attending to administrative tasks. The workshop begins with a didactic review of the research on organizational culture & identify, role conflict in agency-based clinical supervision, and approaches to addressing these challenges. It concludes with discussion and activities on how attendees will apply these concepts to their supervisory practice.
