Advanced Supervisor Training

The advanced supervisor workshop is designed for MST clinical supervisors from licensed MST programs who have been in the MST supervisor position for six (6) months or more.  MST supervisors can attend the workshop every year if they desire. The workshop is also open to MST program managers from licensed MST programs, as relevant.

Each training, a different topic is addressed, within one or more of the following three areas of responsibility for supervisors: group supervision, clinician development, and Program CQI Management (which includes community collaboration, personnel issues, Quality Assurance, and Continuous Quality Improvement). Typically, the workshop topics will rotate between these three areas of responsibility over the years, and typically, each agenda addresses new areas so that previous trainings are not repeated.

September 2017 Advanced Supervisor Workshop Title: Bridging the Gap: Rigorous Processes for Building Therapist Knowledge Base and Skill

Workshop objectives include:

- Participants will effectively assess therapist clinical skill gaps (basic therapy skills and skills needed to implement the component parts of MST) using weekly case summaries, home visit observations, and recording reviews.

- Participants will be able to identify and converge on assessment of skill gaps with clinicians in clinician development meeting.

- Participants will craft clinical skill development intermediary goals and interventions steps that are observable and measurable through the use of weekly case summaries, home visit observations, and recording reviews.

- Participants will effectively capture observable and measurable intermediary goals and intervention steps in a well-written clinician development plan.

- Participants will improve skills in utilizing case summary prep and group supervision feedback to address therapist skill gaps, including connecting clinician development goals to activities that occur in group supervision.

- Participants will learn how to be flexible in the delivery of feedback and tailor it to a therapist’s immediate and long-term needs.
