This 30-hour combined online and classroom training developed by the Addiction Technology Transfer Center, will meet the thirty (30) hour Clinical Supervision training requirement for the Advanced Counselor and Master Counselor status in the OASAS Substance Use Disorder Scopes of Practice, and recognizes the crucial role of Clinical Supervision in quality assurance of program services.

In light of the COVID 19 pandemic, clinical supervision becomes crucial in supporting and gently guiding your staff towards flexibility and resilience. When properly implemented it improves client care, develops clinical skills, and improves the knowledge and professionalism of clinical personnel. It is paramount in imparting and maintaining ethical standards in the addictions profession.

The Clinical Supervision Foundations Part 2 training consists of 10 hours of interactive Zoom training sessions and 6 hours of multi-media homework assignments. Homework will be submitted to the trainer prior to each of the live Zoom sessions, 2-4.

There is a deep need for all of us to strengthen our understanding of trauma, toxic stress and the behaviors that they see in ourselves and each other. Participants will be asked to explore and contemplate information about toxic stress/trauma, how people respond and most importantly what that means for the conversation that they have with their supervisees. Self-care will be considered throughout the training to build supervisory resiliency and additional skills to support staff.

Participants will complete assigned worksheets which will be followed by a full discussion during the live sessions. In addition, the trainer will speak individually with the learners (separate from the full session) to process their thoughts/beliefs/values, etc. The focus of the training is to build a safe, collaborative space where personal and professional growth is possible.

NYS OASAS has recently made changes to Part 853 Credentialing regulations that requires CASACs to obtain the CASAC-Advanced Level prior to becoming a Clinical Supervisor therefore, the following pre-requisites for attending Clinical Supervision Foundations – part 2 (CSF-II) training have been updated to include:
