Texas Supervision Symposium

Co-sponsored by Baylor and Texas A&M

Supervision is increasingly recognized as its own area of competency, and there is more awareness that maintaining supervisory skill requires ongoing education.  In the process of supervising we often find we need and benefit from the support and advice of others, both inside and outside our own centers.  Nevertheless, we have lots of demand on our time and often many other roles in our counseling center besides being a supervisor or trainer. 

The symposium is a space for education, networking, and support related to the supervision of trainees within a university counseling center context. It arose from the recognition of a lack of opportunities for formation of supervisors and a desire to have more resources, education and community built around clinical supervision. The purpose of the event is to gather supervisors and trainers to build community, share wisdom and deepen our supervisory skills.

The symposium is open to anyone involved in supervision or formation of trainees at a university or college counseling center in Texas. This includes both licensed clinicians and doctoral interns or other trainees who supervise.

If you made it this far, we assume you share our passion for training and supervising, so here are the details:
