Supervision as a Developmental Relationship: Promoting Self-Efficacy, Autonomy & Leadership
Building a trusting relationship with one’s supervisees is an important role of supervision. The Supervisor-Supervisee relationship should be developmental, safe for self-exploration, and transformational (Johnson, Skinner, & Kaskow, 2014). This workshop is designed to help supervisors better identify and work through supervisee confidence and competence issues without jeopardizing the supervisor-supervisee relationship. Practical strategies to overcome these challenges will be discussed.

Using the 360 Case Conceptualization Process for Group Supervision: A Continuing Study
We have worked with practicum and internship instructors to develop the 360 case conceptualization process. As a result of its development as a visual tool used to help students holistically conceptualize counseling clients, we have researched its efficacy at a CACREP accredited institution in the SACES region. After this research, the process was adjusted and researched using a control group in the RMACES region. The results of this final quantitative research study are presented.

Supervisory Working Alliance and Supervisee Attributes in Relation to Nondisclosure in Supervision
This presentation will increase the clinical supervisor's awareness of factors that supervisees bring into clinical supervision. These factors include adult attachment, shame, and perfectionism, along with the possible moderating effect of the supervisory working alliance. The information that supervisees may fail to disclose falls into a variety of categories and may include role ambiguity, conflict in the supervisory relationship, or clinical errors.

Clinical Supervision: Office Versus In-Home
A counselor's ability to obtain knowledge and skills depends heavily on the effectiveness of clinical supervision. Efficient supervision results in improved client outcomes, increased professional development, and enhanced quality of life for a supervisee. As such, the paucity of literature related to in-home counseling (in particular, the supervision of in-home counselors) identifies the need to further discuss the topic. During this 50-minute roundtable, clinical supervision strategies will be discussed.

Doctoral Student Supervisors' Preparedness to Address Secondary Traumatic Stress
Secondary traumatic stress (STS) is becoming more common in mental health professionals that work with trauma survivors. Clinical supervision is documented as an effective strategy to reduce STS. A signature component of most counselor education and supervision doctoral programs is the training and preparation of students to provide clinical supervision. This presentation encourages discussion about pertinent training that supervisors may need to prepare students to address STS in supervision.

School Counseling Site Supervisors: Their Perceptions of Effective Characteristics and Practices
Providing appropriate school counseling site supervision for student interns can be a daunting responsibility.

In this session, presenters will discuss preliminary findings of a qualitative study that examines the characteristics and practices of effective school counseling site supervisors.
