Playful Supervision: Play Based Experiential Techniques for Clinical Supervision

Presented by Jenn Pereira, Ph.D., LPC, RPT-S

This training is designed to highlight the usefulness of play therapy techniques within the supervisory working relationship. Play therapists use myriad play techniques to support the growth and development of their clients; here, we will be exploring the use of these same techniques within the context of supervision. This approach is also an experiential method for adding new play therapy techniques to a supervisee’s repertoire. Within the supervisory relationship are the roles of supervisor and supervisee, contractual obligations, ethical duties and concerns, and evaluative components. The training will target each of these through the lens of using play-based techniques to develop a growth-oriented supervisory relationship.  Participants will review their own supervisory style and needs of their supervisees, and learn several play therapy techniques that can be adapted to fit their work.  Participants will leave with techniques that can be applied immediately to different aspects of the supervisory relationship.  We will also discuss techniques that can be implemented to assist supervisees in overcoming roadblocks to successful client care.

Learning Objectives: 

Participants will be able to: 

1. Identify a number of play therapy techniques they can use in clinical supervision

2. Discuss their current supervision strategies and usefulness of experiential techniques

3. Understand how to develop play therapy techniques to fit specific supervision topics and concerns

4. Discuss how to support the transition from using play therapy techniques into supervision sessions

5. Identify play therapy techniques for supervision that deepen the supervisees understanding of themselves and client concerns

Level of training: Advanced

3 CEUs toward the Techniques/Methods Content Requirement
