Strengthening Clinical Supervision in Mental Health Care | Recording


This webinar will highlight key points from the “Supervising Clinical Mental Health Providers” guide published by the University of Washington’s CoLab for Community & Behavioral Health Policy and informed by both the research literature and experiences of community providers, behavioral health leaders, and systems partners.

Quality supervision is paramount to quality mental health care. Clinical supervision for behavioral health providers has three primary aims: to develop competent clinicians, to support clinicians in their own experience of the work, and to promote safe and effective therapy, thereby ensuring client welfare. Clinical supervisors are ethically responsible for evaluating and ensuring clinicians are competent and do not pose risk of harm to the clients they are serving. This webinar and the referenced guide lead from the perspective that regardless of one’s supervision style or approach, all aspects of competent and ethical supervision are inherently trauma informed, intersectional, culturally responsive, and rooted in equity.
