Clinical Supervision for Practicing School Psychologists - Thursdays @ Tufts

Sep 12, 2013 06:30pm -
Dec 05, 2013 08:30pm

Event Description

Clinical Supervision for Practicing School Psychologists

Thursdays, 6:30 – 8:30 pm, 9/12, 9/26, 10/10, 10/24, 11/7, 11/21, 12/5, 12/19.

Instructor: Robert Trant, Ph.D.

MSPP offers group supervision for practicing school psychologists.  Clinical supervision promotes reflective practice, supports ongoing professional development, affords consultation on legal and ethical issues, and helps practitioners effectively address the challenges of providing school psychological services.  Clinical supervision is essential for ongoing development of the skills, knowledge, and professional behaviors that enable schools psychologists to function at a high level and to engage in independent practice. 

Participation in a clinical supervision group will:

  • Promote reflective practice and continued development of professional knowledge and skills;
  • Help the practitioner address challenges in providing school psychological services; and
  • Be applicable toward the 60-hour Supervised Clinical Experience requirement for the Licensed Educational Psychologist (LEP) credential. 

Participants:  This opportunity is open to any graduate of a planned program in school psychology who is concurrently employed as a school psychologist in Massachusetts.  It is intended for school psychologists who have little or no access to clinical supervision in their jobs, especially early career school psychologists.

Supervisors:  Experienced school psychology trainers who qualify as an Approved Supervisor, per Educational Psychologist licensure requirements (see http://www.mass.gov/ocabr/licensee/dpl-boards/mh/regulations/rules-and-regs/262-cmr-500.html).


Schedule:  Supervision groups of up to six (6) participants will meet on a given weekday for 8 two-hour sessions (approximately biweekly) over the course of a semester.  The groups will continue to meet for another 8 sessions in the spring—dates to be announced.


Note:  MSPP will not be offering PDPs or CE credits for this activity, as there is no pre-determined curriculum.   


Program Code: CS13-5

Fee: $400 for 8 sessions

Location: at Tufts University, Medford
