Psychotherapy Supervision


With Carol A. Falender, PhD, and Edward P. Shafranske, PhD, ABPP
Hosted by Arpana G. Inman, PhD

Competency-based supervision is a metatheoretical approach that provides systematic attention to the component parts of the supervision process. This approach enhances accountability and is reflective of both evidence-based practice generally and APA's new guidelines for clinical supervision.

This approach systematically addresses the supervisory relationship, bidirectional feedback, infusion of multiculturalism and diversity, and ethical and legal standards. Competency-based supervision maintains a balance among the equally important priorities of protecting the client, gate-keeping for the profession, and enhancing the professional growth and development of the supervisee.

In this video, Dr. Edward Shafranske and a supervisee engage in a demonstration session, after which host Dr. Arpana G. Inman interviews him and his coauthor Dr. Carol Falender about their approach and its implementation.

With Kirk J. Schneider, PhD
Hosted by Hanna Levenson, PhD

The goal of existentialíVhumanistic (or existentialíVintegrative) supervision is to assist the supervisee to work flexibly and integratively with his or her client within the context of a deepening availability to an experiential encounter. The chief means by which this work is facilitated is via whole-bodied presence - or the holding and illuminating of that which is palpably significant between therapist and client and within the client.

In existentialíVhumanistic therapeutic supervision, the supervisor must pay close attention to how the supervisee is present both within the supervisory session as well as with his or her clients, and to the supervisee's attunement to the client's desire and capacity for change, and how that desire and capacity is addressed. Experiential role plays and rehearsal are also drawn on to bring this aforementioned supervision format "alive."

In this video, Dr. Kirk J. Schneider and his supervisee engage in a supervisory session, and host Dr. Hanna Levenson interviews them about their work together, exploring the constructs of this model as they discuss highlights from the demonstration session.

With Laura S. Brown, PhD
Hosted by Arpana G. Inman, PhD

In Feminist Therapy Supervision, guest expert supervisor Dr. Laura S. Brown demonstrates and discusses this approach to supervision. The goal of feminist supervision is to empower the supervisee by using analysis of gender and analysis of power to achieve the goal of an egalitarian supervisory relationship, while simultaneously acknowledging and embracing feminist political analysis and scholarship on the psychology of women and gender.

The feminist supervisor integrates a multiculturally informed approach to understanding the client's distress as well as the supervisee's challenges and capacities.

In this DVD, Dr. Brown and her supervisee engage in a supervisory session that shows how the identities for all parties in the supervision triad - client, supervisor, and supervisee - inform what occurs in both the supervision and the psychotherapy. Host Dr. Arpana G. Inman interviews Brown and her supervisee about their work together, exploring the constructs of this model as they examine the session in detail.

With Elizabeth L. Holloway, PhD, ABPP
Hosted by Arpana G. Inman, PhD

The systems approach to supervision (SAS) provides a heuristic framework designed from empirical, conceptual and practice knowledge to guide supervisory work. The SAS model can assist in the systematic assessment of supervisees' learning needs and supervisors' teaching interventions while providing a common language to describe supervisory process that is relevant across different theoretical perspectives.

In this video, Dr. Elizabeth L. Holloway and her supervisee engage in a supervisory session demonstrating the systems approach, and host Dr. Arpana G. Inman interviews Dr. Holloway and her supervisee about their work together, exploring the constructs of this model as they emerge in this supervisory session.

With Joan E. Sarnat, PhD, ABPP
Hosted by Hanna Levenson, PhD

In Relational Psychodynamic Psychotherapy Supervision, guest expert supervisor, Dr. Joan E. Sarnat, demonstrates and discusses this approach to supervision. The goal of relational psychodynamic supervision is to create a more experiential, participatory, and relationship-focused form of supervision, one that not only provides usable psychotherapeutic knowledge and skills, but also facilitates the emotional and relational development that is essential to becoming an effective psychodynamic psychotherapist.

In this video, Sarnat and her supervisee engage in a supervisory session, and host Dr. Hanna Levenson interviews them about their work together, exploring the constructs of this model and the nature of the supervisory relationship.

In the session, Dr. Sarnat's supervisee conveys that she is frustrated by how her patient is discounting her during the termination phase of therapy. By becoming aware of and working with her own feelings of frustration within the session, Dr. Sarnat demonstrates the art of using a reenactment to help the supervisee deepen her awareness and thereby facilitate the therapy.

With Brian W. McNeill, PhD
Hosted by Arpana G. Inman, PhD

In The Integrative Developmental Model of Supervision, guest expert supervisor Dr. Brian W. McNeill demonstrates and discusses this approach to supervision.

The goal of the integrative developmental model (IDM) is to promote personal and professional therapist growth through three developmental levels by closely attending to the three overriding structures of Self- and Other-Awareness, Motivation, and Autonomy across eight domains of clinical practice including intervention skills competence, assessment techniques, individual differences, and professional ethics.

The IDM stresses the importance of assessing the therapist's developmental level while at the same time providing the optimal supervisory environment for progression through those levels.

In this video, Dr. McNeill and his supervisee engage in a supervisory session, and host Dr. Arpana G. Inman interviews them about their work together, exploring the constructs of this model as they discuss highlights from the demonstration session.

With Erik Sween, PsyD

Now you can help your students walk into their first session with confidence! They'll hear from new therapists what it's like to begin clinical work, which will answer troublesome questions, ease anxieties and provide for fruitful group discussion.

Students training to be therapists often don't know what to expect going into their first sessions with clients. This can ignite a quickly growing list of fears inside their heads: What if my client doesn't like me? What if I come off as inexperienced? What if I don't know what to say? Likewise, seasoned therapists all remember the first time they met with a client-the anxiety and self-doubt were palpable.

In this video, you'll hear from several therapists that have just made it through their first internships. Specifically, you'll learn about:
~ How it felt to meet with a client for the first time: what they were worried about before the session, what it was like in the room, and how it felt afterwards
~ What was particularly helpful during their first internship
~ What challenges they faced and how they overcame them
~ How they developed their clinical confidence
~ What advice they received that was most helpful during this challenging year in their career
~ And how it feels now to be a therapist compared to when they first began

By Jon Carlson, PsyD, EdD Don Dinkmeyer, Jr., PhD

If your work involves children-either directly or indirectly-understanding how to consult with parents and teachers is a crucial clinical task. Here, watch two seasoned experts present key ideas and interventions for conducting successful school-based consultations.

Successful school-based consultation requires an understanding not only of child behavior, but also of the myriad issues children's parents and teachers bring to the table. In this rich video, Drs. Jon Carlson and Don Dinkmeyer offer insight and strategies that will not only support your growth as a consultant, but also help you make a deeper impact on youth by targeting the "managers of the system." Here, you'll learn about the underlying messages of different types of child misbehavior, get tools for helping adults recognize and soften their own reactivity, and find realistic ideas for shifting these fraught dynamics.

Seasoned experts in the field, Carlson and Dinkmeyer begin with an overview of key school-based consultation theories, such as the "useless triangle," and skills such as empathy, communication analysis, and focusing on the adult's responses to the child. Throughout the video, they highlight the complex issues that can result in power struggles, academic problems, and tantrums.

You'll also see each clinician conduct several actual consultations, including meetings with individual teachers, parent-child pairs, and a group of five mothers of children varied in age. You'll watch Carlson work with a pre-kindergarten teacher so frustrated by her 4-year-old student's antics that she's ready to send him to special education; an exacerbated mother who's resorted to "pleading" with her son to do his chores; and a resigned father whose inability to enforce his son's bedtime has led to the son's "tuning him out." You'll also witness Dinkmeyer in action, working with a teacher's aide who's at a loss with her sixth grader's lack of school preparation, as well as the aforementioned mother's group.

Collaborative and empathic while also direct and practical, Carlson and Dinkmeyer each lead their clients to positive, hopeful outcomes. If you're looking for a primer on school-based consultations or examples of work with real clients, this video will help you quickly upgrade your skill set.

By watching this video, you will:
~ Understand the theoretical foundations of school-based consultation.
~ Learn how to speak with teachers and parents in an empathic way that also supports change.
~ Discover key interventions for addressing the underlying needs of child misbehavior.

By Rex Stockton

Gain new skills for leading psychotherapy groups in this video featuring seasoned group expert, Rex Stockton, supervising two students as they lead a 16-week group to deeper insight, connection, and personal engagement.

Whether you've led, observed or participated in therapeutic process groups, you've likely sensed that they have concrete, discernible phases. In this educational video, Dr. Rex Stockton explicitly demystifies these phases in a straightforward way, offering clear outlines interspersed with corresponding demonstrations of the developmental stages of short-term group therapy, co-facilitated by two of Stockton's supervisees.

This group takes a journey, indeed! The video is both ambitious and adventurous, and you'll feel gratified watching leaders Eddie and Kent take their insights from Stockton's supervision back to the group at each stage. The six group members (seamlessly role-played by Stockton's other counseling students) learn as they go, staying engaged amid emotional uncertainty and interpersonal rifts that threaten group cohesion.

You'll see the two leaders gain confidence over the course of the group, offering process statements that encourage thoughtful cross-communication, titrating the pace of individual contributions, and helping members translate insight into action. Nearing the group's end, each member is invited to resolve unfinished business while processing both the closure of the group and plans for integrating the work into their lives. At the group's close, all involved are genuinely moved by the experience.

By watching this video, you will:
~ Understand the developmental stages and trajectory of short-term group counseling.
~ Identify clinical signposts for making effective group interventions.
~ Learn tools for supporting group members in self-disclosure, processing group milestones, and integrating the work.

By John C. Norcross

In this compelling interview with one of the most prominent psychotherapy researchers of our time, Dr. John Norcross presents the results from fourteen meta-analyses that reveal the secrets to successful therapy.

By watching this video, you will:
~ Learn what three questions to ask all of your patients in order to: tailor the psychotherapy to each individual; maximize the effectiveness of treatment; and reduce the rate of premature terminations.
~ Understand the importance of the therapeutic relationship and how to skillfully address and repair alliance ruptures.
~ Identify evidence-based steps you can take to improve your therapeutic effectiveness.

If you're skeptical of the idea that psychotherapy is akin to a medical procedure, and uncomfortable with the trend towards empirically validated treatments which don't acknowledge the therapeutic relationship, then this video will show you that your doubts are more than reasonable, and, in fact, backed up by decades of research. Norcross persuasively makes the case that the human element inherent in psychotherapy should take center stage, because it is scientifically proven to play a significant role in successful treatment outcomes.
