Kathy is authorized by the LCSW and LMFT boards to provide clinical supervision in order for licensees to to accumulate the required hours for their licensee exams.
Clinical supervision requires a unique set of knowledge and skills which build on, but are different from, counseling knowledge and skills. Administrative supervision also requires a unique set of knowledge and skills that often can differ from the knowledge and approach that clinically trained professionals utilize. This series offers a learning opportunity for those professionals new to clinical supervision as well as for those needing some advanced training or needing further knowledge with regard to administrative issues.
Perhaps one of the most challenging times for a clinician comes when they are promoted to a supervisory level and join the management team. This shift requires a new set of skills, a large body of knowledge which has not been needed as a clinician and, most importantly of all, a whole new emotional and mental mind set.
