Clinical supervision is a core component of masters and doctoral-level training in mental health. While there are multiple models and theories of supervision, integration of trauma-informed frameworks is lacking. Graduate training programs may integrate trauma-informed and strength-based frameworks into discussion of client care, conceptualization of clinical cases, and treatment planning; however, these frameworks are equally as important and beneficial in the practice and delivery of clinical supervision.
This presentation aims to provide clinical supervisors with an understanding of the core features of the trauma-informed framework and strength-based approach, and how to apply these models to the supervisor-supervised relationship and development of clinical trainees. Clinical supervisors will also be encouraged to think how these models can also be applied at the systemic level within their respective organizations.
