Sponsored by the ACES Supervision Interest Network
February 18, 2022 – 1 to 2 pm EST
1.0 NBCC Approved CE (1.0 Supervision CE)
Presented by Ryan M. Cook, Ph.D., LPC, ACS
While counselors are called to attend to the harmful effects that trauma can have on clients; however, they may be unprepared to engage in trauma-focused counseling. Clinical supervisors may be able to better prepare their supervisees to engage in trauma-focused work by integrating principles of Trauma-Informed Supervision (TIS) into their existing supervision practices. The presenter of this webinar will discuss the need for TIS, review the theoretical principles of TIS, and share strategies for supervisors to integrate TIS in their supervision.
