Season 3 Episode 6: Finding the Right EMDR Consultant or CIT
So you've taken the huge step of getting trained in EMDR- and now you're realizing how isolating it can feel to have so many questions and no clear answers. It feels like being a graduate student all over again, where there are so many chances to mess up and you don't know what's exactly right. It's key to have a good consultant available to help you through this time so you can provide sound, ethical EMDR healing to your vulnerable clients, and feel more empowered as you grow. Here's how to find that support for yourself!
Season 3 Season 3 Episode 5: Working with an Unsupportive Supervisor
Have you ever worked with a supervisor who didn't understand your needs, seemed out of touch with the realities of clinical work, or who downright made you feel terrible about yourself? Maybe you're feeling trapped in this situation now, when more is being asked of clinicians and supervisors than ever before? Tune in to this week's episode for some strategies to work through common challenges in supervision!
Season 3 Episode 4: The One Thing We All Need to Provide Quality Care
I don't know about all of you, but I've been feeling extremely lost out at sea, and like it's all I can do to keep my head above water every day to keep doing this work. This week, I share a few quick thoughts about the importance of having an intersectional feminist, liberation-focused, anti-oppression approach to therapy, supervision, interactions with colleagues and our workplaces, as well as in our personal lives. The only way we get through these challenges is together. And the only way we can come together is by unpacking our -isms and committing to daily growth- even if it isn't always pretty.
Season 3 Episode 3: Using a Supervision Genogram
We have all used genograms for ourselves and alongside our clients in some form or other. But I can almost guarantee you've never considered making a supervision-specific genogram for yourself or alongside your supervisors/supervisees! This week, I talk about all the cool things I learned in a recent training about just this, and all the insights it can yield for all parties involved. Whether you're a new clinician or a seasoned supervisor, this is a tool that will supercharge your already stellar work!
Season 3 Episode 2: Video Reviews in Supervision
The concept of capturing session content in videos for supervisees and therapist undergoing training in specific modalities is becoming increasingly popular. This is often uncomfortable for trainees, and is something that should be navigated with delicacy alongside clients and supervisees. This week, I talk a little more about how to do just that!
Season 3 Episode 1: Want to Refer Your Client for EMDR? Start Here First!
If you have clients who need more help processing some negative beliefs or traumatic experiences, EMDR can be an excellent fit for them! There's a lot most clinicians who aren't EMDR trained don't know that could really facilitate the referral process, so listen here to know how to best help your clients (and supervisees or colleagues!) during this sensitive time. Don't forget to check the show notes for resources!
I am currently in graduate school for clinical counseling. I have been listening to the Supportive Supervision podcast have found it so informative and amazing. One of my favorite episodes discusses self-care (episode 9). It is a topic that is not frequently discussed in grad school. Prior to listening to the podcast, self-care, to me, meant doing something “relaxing” such as getting your nails done. The podcast brought to my attention that self-care does not always involve doing something that is considered relaxing. Self-care can be going to supervision, connecting with other people in your field or doing something for yourself. I feel like there could (and should) be a whole graduate course on self-care. I also enjoyed the episode what grad school never taught me (episode 13). As a student, this information was very helpful and made me feel more confident about jumping into the counseling field. All the episodes have been wonderful so far and I am excited to continue listening and learning more about the field.
