This bi-monthly clinical supervision group brings clinicians together to deepen their understanding of trauma-informed care and to create a safe, reflective forum for dialogue and collaborative learning.
Currently, there are openings in the groups that meet twice a month on Mondays or Thursdays, 4:00 – 5:30 pm.
Trauma-informed care and practice is a promising framework for working with clients facing multiple, chronic, extreme adversities and trauma; clients who are often inaccurately labeled “treatment resistant,” “treatment-sabotaging,” and disengaged. Bringing together current research from the fields of trauma and interpersonal neurobiology, trauma-informed practice is about getting unstuck when working with clients who are profoundly stuck, by re-seeing their stories, beliefs, and behaviors from a fresh perspective.
Group members meet on alternate Mondays afternoons in my office in the Buckman neighborhood in Portland, Oregon. The group focuses on trauma-informed case conceptualization, planning, and intervention, as well as buffering the impacts of vicarious trauma and promoting practitioner self-care. It also includes a modest number of optional readings.
The cost is $35 per participant per group session. The group is appropriate for clinicians, both CSWAs and LPC interns, needing supervision hours for their clinical license as well as more experienced practitioners.
