The purpose of this webinar is to provide substance use disorder (SUD) clinical supervisors with specialized training so that they may effectively meet the demands of today’s SUD clinical supervisor. This webinar will explore the discrimination model, a process supervision model, and its place in SUD clinical supervision. As detailed in the basic tents of the model, SUD supervisors will learn the skills necessary to discern their foci and role to match the individual training needs of each unique supervisee. SUD supervisors will be able to explore and apply theoretical underpinnings of the model by actively engaging in immersive learning opportunities within the webinar. Skills learned in the training can be readily transferred into the SUD workforce, directly supporting the sustainability and efficacy of the SUD clinical supervisor.
