This course prepares professionals to supervise marriage and family therapists in a variety of settings and provides extensive discussion related to the supervision literature and practice of MFT supervision. Information learned is also transferable to other related fields of psychology, social work, etc.
Students receive a syllabus including a reading list upon registration. All readings are to be completed BEFORE the first day of on-campus class. These readings are found on the syllabus sent to you upon registration. The first two days of face-to-face class, students learn about effective supervision and discuss the latest scholarly research on the training of therapists. The second two days, students participate behind the one-way mirror in the newly remodeled CSU Center for Family and Couple Therapy and actively supervise, with the course instructor, live cases with individuals, couples, and families. The remainder of the semester is spent completing a writing assignment and 15 hours of supervision. A CEU certificate is issued upon successful course completion.
This course has an online component delivered through RamCT Blackboard.
