Targets in Clinical Supervision: Lessons from an Integrated Model

Brief Description: Clinical Supervision has become an increasingly complex practice with different models of supervision originating from different professions and different theories and approaches to psychotherapy/counseling.  Clinical Social Work as a profession has an arguably more complex task of integrating information from these different sources.  Integrated models of psychotherapy and their approaches to supervision offer Clinical Social Work supervisors supplements in organizing and choosing targets for the development of supervisees.  In this presentation, participants will learn about the "ACES" model of Clinical Supervision from Emotionally Focused Therapy and the Deliberate Practice model of supervision across approaches, and how to apply lessons from these models in more generalist Clinical Social Work Supervision.



James McCracken, MSW, LCSW (he/him/his) is a Certified Emotionally Focused Therapy Supervisor and Practitioner and Clinical Social Work supervisor in private practice in Durham, NC.  James specializes in couple and family therapy and supervision of clinical social workers and emotionally focused therapists.  James brings to his current work over 15 years of clinical and supervisory experience, working in private practice and in community agency settings with persons recovering from psychiatric, medical and addiction problems as well as relational distress and traumatic histories.
