Limited to 16 attendees


Each participant will video a role-play session with someone who is NOT a supervisee.  A colleague or family member must is usual the best option.  S/he will sign an video release agreement.  You will coach the volunteer how to "act as a supervisee", prior to the video, about a specific developmental time period in the supervisory relationship (i.e., Initial interview, 1/4, 1/2, or 3/4s the way through the 2-year LPCA supervision period.)  The video should be on a thumb-drive that is compatible with Windows.  The sound should be strong/clear enough that typical computer volume controls can either boost or decrease the sound adequately.  The "supervisor" and "supervisee" must be seated so that the workshop group can observe both parties.

Homework 1) Each participant will present about a 5-min section of her/his video, preferably one that the workshop participant feels is noteworthy or is troublesome for any given reason.  The "supervisor" in the video will be given  5- mins of feedback by the rest of the workshop members using the Huffman/Phifer "mirror-in-the-mirror"  carefully structured feedback format.  This assignment assures all participants get substantial, professional, safe, and useful feedback about their supervision skills.  The main goal of this assignment is personal/professional awareness, growth and development.

Homework 2)  Each participant will explore personality typing through free online "tests".  Suggested websites will be offered.  Participants must "type" themselves using both a 16 personality-type system based in Jungian psychological theory (e.g., Kiersey types, Myers-Briggs types) and a second personality typing system, the Enneagram, consisting of nine core possibilities.  Each participant will construct a brief PowerPoint (six slide limit!) detailing how his/her personal type awareness can/will shape the supervisory relationship and, in turn, influence awareness of multicultural/diversity issues, a powerful component in all supervisor/supervisee/client interaction.

Homework 3) Each participant will construct a brief PowerPoint (eight slide limit!) outlining one's attitude/opinion/ethical concerns of  the pros/cons of distance supervision via the Internet and how comfortable s/he is with the concept.  This is to be a self-reflection PP -- not a description of distance supervision.  Explore how one's personality type (one of 16 and one of 9) shapes a pro/con approach to distance supervision.
