Worry-free Online Supervision: Ethical and Creative
As online counselor education programs continue to rise, supervisors have the responsibility to facilitate group supervision via non-traditional methods. In order to actively engage supervisees in this collaborative process, supervisors need to creatively facilitate supervisee reflection, growth, and clinical skills. Participants will participate in experiential activities and walk away with practical strategies that can be used for both online and traditional group supervision formats.

Supervision in Play Therapy
Clinical play therapy supervision provides opportunities for both personal and professional growth. This unique professional relationship supports the play therapy supervisee or counselor as well as the client, families, community, and schools. The responsibilities of the supervisor and the supervisee relationship are complex, grounded in trust and respect. Play therapy supervision is a reflective process with benefits of growth, change, and healing (Mullen, 2015).

Using creative arts activities in supervision and class generates counselors-in-training self-awareness, empathy, use of theory in practice, and ability to identify underlying themes.

The Code will be used to address (1) supervisors’ responsibilities to promote diversity awareness among supervisees and (2) integrating multicultural concepts into the supervisory relationship. Case presentations will be used to discuss the application of diversity awareness during supervision.

Deliberate Practice: Developing Effective Counselors Through Supervision
Deliberate Practice (DP) is a specialized type of practice that is purposeful and systematic and can be integrated into the supervisory process as a means to develop expertise and improve supervisee development. Through DP, supervisors can learn to use unique outcome information in providing specific feedback, and how to conduct a priori hypothesis testing to increase supervisee outcomes. Attendees will be provided DP feedback forms as well as outcome measures.

Integrating Intersectionality into the Integrated Developmental Model of Supervision
Intersectionality explains the intersecting nature of aspects of identity and social stratification and oppression. Efforts have been made in the counseling profession to work with clients from a holistic and intersectional approach, but it is unclear how supervisors can infuse this perspective in their work with supervisees. This presentation outlines specific strategies for integrating intersectionality with supervisees using the three levels of the Integrated Developmental Model (IDM) of supervision.

Learning to Be a Supervisor: Supervision-of-Supervision as a Reflexive Transforming Process
Doctoral interns engage in an experiential learning process to integrate their thinking, doing, and becoming a supervisor. As a developmental process, individual supervision-of-supervision (iSoS) can move beyond skill development and tape reviews. The faculty-intern reflexive alliance nurtures the ebb and flow of a transforming process. The presenters will review the current literature, present a guiding framework, and engage in a dialogical conversation of their iSoS transforming process.

What Supervisors Need to Know About How Supervisees Process Constructive Feedback
When a supervisor offers constructive feedback, how does a supervisee perceive the feedback? Does attachment play a role? What are the implications for the supervisory relationship? In this session, the presenters offer findings from a content analysis study of supervisors’ constructive feedback from supervisees’ perspectives and discuss the interplay of processing feedback through an attachment lens. Implications for providing constructive feedback will be discussed.

Students with disabilities in higher education often have additional challenges compared to those without disabilities (Mamiseishvili & Koch, 2011). This presentation will address how using strengths-based supervision can meet the unique needs of counselors in training (CITs) with disabilities by helping them identify and utilize their strengths to capitalize on their potential and increase effectiveness (Wade & Jones, 2015).

Who Am I, and Why Does That Matter? Exploring Identity in Counselor Supervision
Counselor educators and supervisors aim to produce and develop multiculturally competent counselors.

This presentation will review the importance of as well as ideas of how to explore identity in counselor supervision.
