Join us as we examine play therapy supervision through creative modalities. This workshop adapts several play and art-based interventions helpful in the clinical supervision process. A review of two theoretical models of supervision will lay the groundwork for building our skills in giving and receiving feedback as a key supervisory competency. Unique to this workshop will be opportunities for growth through deconstructing role play scenarios using a “supervision of supervision” andragogical learning format.  

Learning Objectives

  • Attendees will be able to identify two benefits for utilizing a playful approach in the supervision of play therapists.
  • Attendees will review the developmental and discrimination theoretical models of supervision applicable for play therapy supervision and be able to name one key concept from each model.
  • Attendees will either experience or observe “supervision of supervision” andragogy as a way to explore professional strengths, challenges, and areas of growth.

Forever HomeBy Sue Carroll Duffy, Psy.D. RPT-S

Little Bear is very sad when grandmother bear dies.  All the bears gather in a circle to remember what they loved about grandmother bear.  She is lifted on eagle’s wings to the Other Side of the river and received by her ancestors.  When little bear sees the eagle, he remembers grandmother bear (12 pages).
