Monday, February 23, 2009, 11:25:20 AM
This is the second of two episodes in which Dr. Stoltenberg talks about the art of clinical supervision. In Part 2, Dr. Stoltenberg tackles the question, "How do we evaluate what's occurring in supervision and how is it affecting work with clients?" Stoltenberg suggests that supervision should be concerned with tracking what clinicians are implementing with clients, how are they implementing it, and how effectively it is working.

By Rebecca Poage, LCSW :
I am a seasoned Licensed Clinical Social Worker who is launching into a new phase of my career as I begin to supervise unlicensed mental health professionals and students. This podcast was rich and dynamic with a wide array of information given which conveyed the wealth of Dr. Stoltenberg's experience in training and supervising students and mental health professionals in various stages of their careers. His information was rich with practical suggestions of using evidence based practice and teaching students and supervisees to self evaluate, to help supervisors to self evaluate and to keep aware of the variety of approaches, modalities and theories that can be utilized and drawn from, so as provide the best care and treatment for clients. I found especially interesting, how Dr. Stoltenberg spoke of the usefulness of manualized treatment even for an expert therapist. It was fascinating how he noted that of the study where these expert therapists used manualized treatment, those therapists who were able to deviate from the manual when they saw the need in therapy, had better outcome with the clients that the ones who stayed strictly to the manual protocol. I found myself taking copious notes of the podcast and wanting to listen to it at least 3 or 4 more times to flesh out the content in writing so as to not miss one gem of truth and experience that Dr, Stoltenberg had presented. I will definitely seek to follow Dr. Stoltenberg's recommendations as I launch into this next phase of my career.
