Target Audience:
Social Workers, LCPCs, and Psychologists



Supervision is a key component to becoming a successful independent practitioner. However, there are important aspects of supervision, both group and individual, that are necessary to make sure that your supervisee is prepared to work with the senior population. The challenges can be daunting and working with this population isn't for everyone. It is important to dig deep into the challenges this population presents and the rewards you receive in the most creative manner. This will allow supervision to be most effective. Each participant will learn what is crucial to incorporate during supervision when working with a senior client.
