SSP Annual Symposium: Respect in the Supervisory Situation

Bryan Nichols, PhD; Leslye Russel, MFT

Saturday February 4, 2017, 9:00am – 4:00pm (6 CEs)

Find Out What It Means to Me In The Supervisory Situation

Morning Presenters: Bryan Nichols, PhD and Leslye Russell, MFT
Afternoon Panel: Amy Glick, MFT, Mark Bronnenberg, LCSW, and Sabeen Shaiq, LCSW

In the iconic song “Respect”, Aretha Franklin asks us to “find out what it means to me”. Following her lead, we invite you to join us in exploring what respect means to each of us in our supervisory roles as well as how we do and don't convey respect to our supervisees in the service of teaching and learning to do psychotherapy. In addition to our two morning speakers and afternoon panel, symposium participants will have the opportunity to interact with the topic in small group discussions.

In the Symposium we will explore and discuss:

  • How our life experience and social locations shape our ideas about what is and isn’t respectful treatment in supervision.
  • How to find the right balance in co-creating respectful supervisory relationships that allow authentic interaction.
  • How to manage issues of dysregulation, shame, and disrespect in the supervisory relationship.
