Many Hats…Day One
So far, the conference is off to a great start! Although, the weather around here is something else entirely. Wintery and Blustery are words that come to mind- and not words you think of often while living in Central Texas.
Dr. Dorinda Noble and Andrew Marks are facilitating this four-day training. With a subject matter that could potentially be extremely dry, today was entertaining and fast paced. We discussed extremely relevant and important information related to ethics in private practice and supervision- which is something that just doesn’t get enough floor time in professional discussions.
We’ve begun to identify “what makes a good supervisor.” Leave me your feedback in the comments or on Facebook. What do you think makes a good supervisor? Think about the greatest supervisor you’ve had? Why was that supervisor great?
I’ve had a few great supervisors- but the first few things that come to mind for me are:
- Professional Integrity
- Depth of knowledge surrounding area of expertise
- Ability to provide honest feedback- even if it was negative feedback
- High Expectations
- Clear boundaries
- Transparency- I never had to guess what he was thinking because he told me!
So tell me- what makes a good supervisor??
