Course Description

Clinical Supervision Certificate Program

Temple University Harrisburg is offering a 20-hour certificate program in clinical supervision. The program will prepare participants to provide clinical supervision to graduate level clinicians seeking licensure or professional development. Through the use of lecture, case method discussion, interactive journaling and reading, participants will examine developmental and relational models of supervision, with an emphasis on the parallel process of supervision. The course concludes with two supervision groups in which supervisory vignettes brought in by participants will be utilized to illustrate the theoretical constructs.
