Supervisors recognize that the supervisory relationship is a partnership, based on trust and a spirit of collaboration. The research, evidence and essential knowledge and skills of effective supervision will be highlighted throughout the workshop. Participants will explore how supervisory style and communication influence the supervisory relationship. Stages of skill acquisition, current best practices and trends in clinical supervision including the role of critical thinking will be discussed. Ethical issues related to supervision as included in the new 2023 Code of Ethics will also be discussed. Participants will use ASHA’s 2016 self-assessment tool to rate their own competencies as supervisors and develop an individualized plan for personal growth in supervision.
