Supervisory relationships are among the most important foundational aspects of a counselor’s career. An encouraging, challenging supervisor can help a student intern or a graduate seeking licensure find his or her strengths, and develop as a professional. Supervision that encourages growth requires intentional investment into the lives of these individuals on the path to independent practice.  During this workshop, participants will discuss the basic requirements for supervision, the legal and ethical aspects of supervision, and the practical aspects of supervision. 

Presented by

Cara Cochran, Ph.D., LPC, LMFT

Dr. Cara Cochran is a licensed professional counselor and a licensed marital and family therapist, and has been providing supervision for over thirteen years. An Approved Clinical Supervisor through the Center for Credentialing and Education, she has presented nationally on the topic of supervision. Dr. Cochran is Associate Provost and Chair of the Psychology Department at Tennessee Temple University and maintains a small private practice serving clients and providing supervision and consultation.
