Didactic Instructors: Thorana Nelson, PhD and Georgie Winter, PhD
Course Description: This course is taught from a systemic/relational perspective and covers a breadth of generalist ideas. That is, rather than “teach” supervision or supervise therapy from a particular perspective (modernist, postmodernist, constructionist, developmental, clinical), the course covers the basics for a number of perspectives that may fit the course participants’ ideas and worldviews. Through presentations, readings, short reflection papers, and an online, face-to-face, interactive series of 5 sessions, the course allows students a number of perspectives related to the purpose and goals of supervision within AAMFT supervision course guidelines. These include helping training therapists with ensuring client care, mastering competencies (both core and approach-specific), self-of-the-therapist and self-of-the-supervisor, context-sensitive, therapist professional growth, and other purposes as the supervisor and training therapist identify as individual supervisory systems. The course instructors are, themselves, constructionist in perspective, but teach and supervise a variety of perspectives and therapy/supervision approaches.
