A strong supervisory alliance is an important aspect of effective and ethical clinical practice. Most supervisors are multi-stressed and may feel they don’t have time to utilize unfamiliar approaches or always know how to address process issues.
Join us for this two-hour didactic and experiential workshop and learn how to use writing practices to: enhance supervisor/supervisee self-reflection, to explore transference and countertransference and to boost creative problem solving as well as offer opportunities for clarity or emotional closure. We will address some common challenges in clinical supervision and their writing-based interventions. Attention will be given as well to the research base for effective clinical supervision practices. Participants need not currently be in a supervisory role as practices for self-supervision will be offered as well. This workshop equips participants with beginning skills to utilize expressive writing as a supervisory tool, though additional consultation is needed for in-depth application and this workshop does not substitute for supervisory training.
Participants will be able to:
- Name at least 2 writing-based strategies to increase self awareness
- Differentiate between containment and expansion based writing strategies and when to use each
- $60.00 – Alumni, Adjuncts, Field Instructors
- $30.00 – Current Student
- $80.00 – Regular Registration

Adelphi University School of Social Work is an approved provider for continuing education credits for the following:
- Social Workers
- CASAC Renewal
Successful completion for the award of approved continuing education credits requires attendance at the entire training/workshop and submission of a completed evaluation form.
New York State Office of the Professions (NYSED) regulations require that participants must be present for the entire approved educational activity in order to receive a certificate for continuing education hours. There is no accommodation in the State regulations for late arrival, late return from lunch or breaks, or early departure. According to NYSED, in order to award social work CEs; “When you offer a multi-day or multi-part course/educational activity, the learner must complete all parts in order to earn the certificate for contact hours, in the same way that a student must complete a semester-long course to receive college credit. You may not award partial credit for a program, even a one-day program, if the learner does not complete all requirements at that time.
Unfortunately, we cannot provide refunds for cancellations made seven working days or fewer before the event for any reason—or for no-shows. We can provide credit towards a future workshop up to 24 hours before the event. After that, no credit will be issued.
