"I appreciated the clarity of instruction. The suggested readings were incredibly helpful."
"I loved the course, and wish I had the opportunity to attend years ago. I liked the way it was presented - welcoming to new and seasoned counselors."

Clinical supervision for practitioners and play therapists is an important aspect of counselor education. Much of traditional supervision is conducted from a logical standpoint; however, some supervisees may be better served when supervisors integrate both logic and creativity.
Creative supervision interventions are suggested to be supportive of mental health supervisees’ professional development. Current research suggests that engaging in art tasks in supervision is a positive experience for participants, and one that increases supervisees’ self-understanding and teaches a new skill in counseling clients.
This workshop offers a variety of creative activities to be integrated into supervision that can blend well with traditional supervision models.
Supervisors have a number of roles and responsibilities, including assuring the welfare of the client; making sure that ethical, legal, and professional standards are being upheld; overseeing the clinical and professional development of the supervisee; and evaluating the supervisee.
