Join us for our 2020 Virtual Social Work Lecture Series
Session 2: Clinical Supervision: Tools for Enhancing the Ethical Practice of Those You Supervise
Presented by Gisele Ferretto, MSW, LCSW-C
Supervisors have an essential role in teaching social workers professional ethics and strategies for addressing ethical issues in their practice. The purpose of this workshop is to enhance supervisory skills to help social workers understand their legal and ethical professional responsibilities. This workshop includes practice activities to apply the content covered and examples of strategies for enhanced supervision. This three-hour workshop will satisfy the three Supervision CEU requirements. (New BSWE Regulations [10.42.06.03] require that “Board-approved supervisors complete a minimum of 3 of the required continuing education units in a content area focusing on supervision.”) In addition, the recent legislative changes to the child maltreatment definitions will be covered.
After attending this workshop, clinicians will be able to:
- Explore the functions and role of clinical supervision.
- Distinguish basic elements and terms associated with ethical decision making and the regulatory code of ethics.
- Demonstrate an understanding to instruct on the ethical concepts which impact behavioral health practice.
