WHERE ARE THERAPISTS GETTING THE CLINICAL SUPERVISION AND TRAINING THEY NEED?
This question is a BIG part of our “Why?”
You may have noticed that there aren’t many options to get quality training and Clinical Supervision as a therapist. Unfortunately, once therapists graduate with their Masters, they don’t have many educational options for developing their clinical skills.
If you are extremely fortunate, you are working in a setting where you provide clinical therapy to clients AND you receive excellent Clinical Supervision AND you pursue intensive continuing education.
But the truth is, many therapists are working in agencies where they are overwhelmed by an enormous case load or they often need to focus on case management issues. These conditions make it difficult to develop the clinical skills to do deep therapeutic work. Or, in many cases, therapists are treating clients in counseling centers that seem like “counseling puppy mills”. In these settings, the therapists are often providing therapy “on the fly” without significant Clinical Supervision, training, or support. And while these therapists have all the best intentions, putting therapists in a room with random clients without continuous support is actually robbing the therapist of learning the complex skills that exceptional clinical care requires. Not to mention how scary it is for clinicians when a client requires expertise and support that the therapist doesn’t have.
Further, while the Mental Health fields regard Clinical Supervision as paramount for therapists, this fundamental building-block is often not provided to therapists. Clinical Supervision is essential to the well being of the therapist and is absolutely necessary if they want to provide exceptional therapy to a client. And Clinical Supervision should be provided by an experienced therapist who has vast experiences providing clinical therapy, whom is knowledgeable about how to provide effective supervision, and occurs regularly and frequently. And yet, in many agencies, the therapist’s Supervisors are not even Mental Health Professionals. In other settings, Clinical Supervisors only provide emergency supervision when there is a suicidal client. And too often Clinical Supervision is really just an administrative meeting or an unprofessional social meeting between the therapist and the supervisor.
So where do therapists get their post-graduate training and support? How do they learn to become exceptional therapists providing effective, transformational therapy? Thankfully, we must earn Continuing Education Credits. But most CEU’s courses don’t typically don’t provide the experiential training needed to truly expand clinical skills.
