Hi. My name is Tracy Catherine Appleton. I will be the narrator of this CD. We appreciate
that you have chosen us as a vehicle for you to earn your Continuing Education
The purpose of the course is to assist you in
increasing your knowledge Clinical supervision. As each case study is given, if
the concepts seem to be applicable to your situation, I encourage you to turn
your CD player off and make a few notes regarding the application of the principle
to your setting. However, these notes are for your purposes only and are not to
be sent to the Institute. Also each track is very content dense. So feel free
to replay the track to review the content either for your own purposes, or if
you feel appropriate play the track in an individual or group session for client
education. Also permission is granted to reproduce this CD. We encourage you to
duplicate give copies of this CD to colleagues, clients, etc. as you deem appropriate.
We feel the information on our CD's is valuable. Thus, we have an interest in
distributing CD's in as many ways as possible, to benefit the greatest number
of people, who have a need and are receptive to this practical information.
questions in your Test are sequential and deal with the section of content
that preceded it. For this reason, to facilitate the answering of each question,
you might read the question from the Test prior to listening to that
CD track. By knowing what the question is ahead of time, you will then know the
content to listen for that contains the answer. So just a hint, after you write
down the answer to a question in your Test, read on to the next question
in order to give you a "heads up" to listen for the content that contains
the answer to the next question.
Merely write the correct letter
on the corresponding blank line in your Test. Each answer is only used
once. Keep in mind there is nothing trick or hard about these questions. They
are merely intended to verify the playing of this CD.
the purpose of brevity, most generally, I will use the term "therapists"
or "mental health professional." However, don't let these terms deter
you from applying the concepts to your situations. When you hear the word "therapists,"
if your job title is social worker, psychologist, marriage and family therapist,
mental health counselor, professional counselor, resident director, program assistant,
etc. merely substitute the appropriate term that is the most meaningful to you.
In short, don't let my use of the term "therapists" cognitively set
you off track from hearing the content because your job title is school counselor,
for example. I will also use the term "client" for the purposes of brevity.
However, if you deal with patients, residents, students, consumers, etc., transpose
"client" for the term that is the most meaningful to you in your work
On this CD we will discuss such topics as: Setting
Goals, Resolving Conflicts, Dealing with Discussion Difficulties, Ethics, Facilitation
of Therapist-Client Relationships, The Supervisor's Avoidance of Conflict Issues,
So, let's get started...
