This workshop is designed for those who have recently become supervisors or who are considering becoming supervisors. The material will cover the basic skills that are essential to becoming an effective supervisor. The day will be minimally interactive in nature; however, all participants will be required to sign a confidentiality contract so that participants can feel free to share their own experiences as it relates to the material that will be taught. As the schedule will be full, participants are required to be present for the entire workshop. A bibliography of helpful resource material will be made available to all participants. In this workshop we will address: theory of supervision; ethics of being a supervisor; roles and responsibilities; a model of supervision – Interactional Supervision (Shulman); dynamics of power — issues of being hired from within or from outside; leadership skills; how to begin a supervisory position; and issues of discipline.
