Due to decreased quality employment opportunities and other factors necessary in learning the practice of psychotherapy, many new therapists are receiving incomplete clinical training in critical areas of practice. Nonetheless, many are eager to engage in a supervision relationship that will make them better therapists. As supervisors, a philosophy of creating competent therapists prior to their practicing independently allows us to participate in enhancing ethical practice within the profession. The concept of freedom in supervision is predicated on supervisors reconciling concerns about personal liabilities, when to actively intervene and allowing supervisees opportunities to take risk, make mistakes and grow. This workshop will teach supervisors how to attain this freedom and fluidity.
