Joanna Frankel, LCSW-C
Course Levels:
3 Hours 15 Minutes
Target Audience:
Social Workers, LCPCs, and Psychologists



A social worker who assumes the role of supervisor has specific obligations. A supervisor is responsible for the quality of work that is performed by the supervise, they must be competent in the areas they provide supervision, and they are responsible to assist the supervisee in gaining the knowledge and skills necessary to work effectively with their clients. That doesn’t stop the supervisor from using creative approaches during both individualized and group supervision. Participants will learn ways to keep supervision interesting while still instilling the knowledge necessary to become a successful independent practitioner.
