Crucial to practicing ethical therapy and supervision is the ability to reflect on and explain what we’re doing and why we’re doing it, and what we’re feeling and why we’re feeling it, at any given moment. Deep contemplation about what brings meaning to life, about the human condition, and about cultural impacts on emotions and values can build and enrich a solid and resilient inner foundation for our work. Relentless curiosity about ourselves and our clinical values can help us tap into deep internal knowing and understanding that will guide us toward ethical practice whenever we grapple with difficult therapeutic situations.

Krista Tippett, host of the On Being podcast, provides “a master class in living” in her book Becoming Wise: An Inquiry into the Mystery and Art of Living. She explores the “open questions and challenges of our time,” in a way that “avoids simplifications but still finds the golden threads that weave people and ideas together into a shimmering braid. One powerful common denominator… is the gift of presence, of the exhilaration of engagement with life for its own sake, not as a means to an end.” She seeks to help us “tap into the strength to meet the world where it really is, and then to make it better.”

Join me for a three-session book study of this powerful inquiry into questions that can expand our foundational understanding of what ethical practice really is, so that we can access our deep inner ethicist within our therapy and supervision practices every day. To foster intimate and lively conversation, we’ll share community and happy hour as we discuss the reading.

This course offers 6 CEUs that count as ethics AND supervision CEUs. You do not have to be a supervisor to attend–the ethics CEUs count for straight-up ethics as well. (It’s more ethics CEUs than you need, but it’s an enlivening class that’s worth the time!)

P. S. $200 is a discounted price for a 6-hour study group. I usually charge $80 for a 2-hour study group, so the cost for 6 hours would normally be $240!

Supervisor Continuing Education Classes I’m currently creating include:

Supervisory Ethics

Use what attachment theory, right/left brain science, interpersonal neurobiology, and memory reconsolidation theory tell us about how important safety is to learning, to understand how and why authoritarian, rules-based, hierarchical supervision makes it very difficult for supervisees to grow into good therapists. Because the eyes of the supervisor become the internal eyes the intern will be using when they are working, we need to learn how to develop and “install” compassionate and encouraging internal eyes. This course will show you how.

The Mentorship Model of Supervision

Teaching supervisors to use insights from attachment theory, interpersonal neurobiology, and learning theory to understand how to enter into a mentoring relationship with supervisees that harnesses powerful teaching tools that facilitate deep practice and expert learning, thereby scaffolding strong therapeutic skills, resilience under stress, and confidence all in parallel.

I’m also seeking board approval for a DEEP-Based 40-hour Supervisor’s Training Course! Stay tuned!!
