What is clinical supervision? A question you may have asked yourself, and struggled to put into words a solid definition. This webinar will explore the foundation of clinical supervision for counselors as the working alliance between the supervisor and supervisee. A critical element of this working alliance is a theoretical orientation to supervision that provides a framework through which supervision is facilitated. The presenters will explore relevant literature, discuss ACES best practices, and share their own experiences as supervisors to provide attendees with an understanding of what supervision entails.
