AAMFT Approved Supervisors are dedicated professionals who have obtained the educational, experiential and supervisory training required for the competent supervision of marriage and family therapists and trainees.

If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.
— John Quincy Adams

 

Overview: AAMFT Approved Supervisor Designation

Those who have earned the designation serve as mentors who support and nurture their supervisees’ strengths and resources, and provide a learning environment that ensures thorough marriage and family therapy (MFT) training and education.

AAMFT Approved Supervisors have a breadth and depth of MFT clinical and supervisory experience, and stay involved in the professional MFT community. They are committed to refining their clinical and supervisory skills, and participate in ongoing professional development through their affiliation with the AAMFT.  Approved Supervisors work from a systemic orientation and use a variety of MFT theoretical approaches in their practice.

Supervision for Recovery Oriented Care

AAMFT-CA Division has been actively involved with the Mental Health Services Act and has represented MFTs in state level meetings and policy forums to ensure that our profession is included in the transformed public mental health system and that our clinicians are well  prepared to serve.  Our unique training for supervisors in Recovery Oriented Care has been developed to support and achieve these efforts.

Public Mental Health Supervision

In 2003, a report was published that was prepared by the President’s New Freedom Commission on Mental Health. This report called for sweeping changes in public mental health systems throughout the country based on an inclusive, recovery-oriented approach to treatment and provided specific recommendations for implementation of the transition. With the passage of Proposition 63 in 2004, California became the first (and so far, the only) state in the nation to have the money to instigate a real transition. Prop. 63 became a law in January 2005, now known as the Mental Health Services Act.

The Mental Health Services Act (MHSA) has created more change than any of us could have envisioned prior to its existence, including a demand for a new kind of practitioner—or at least a practitioner with a somewhat different or expanded set of skills and knowledge base than previously was needed and expected.

The 2010 Affordable Care Act encompassed and extended these changes, as new systems and structures are being created across the country.While the BBS has recognized a need to train educators and assist them in the implementation of change, there is a dearth of support and training available for the clinical supervisors who will be required to “raise” our next generation of providers to effectively function within a transformed system of care. Students who emerge from an updated and revised educational program will need to be supervised by clinicians who are able to adequately guide their progress and development within the transformed system.

In response to this unmet need, AAMFT-CA Division has developed a unique training course titled:

THE TRANSFORMED SUPERVISOR:
Clinical Supervision in California Public Mental Health

This course has been offered throughout the state since it was first developed in 2013 through contracts for its instruction with the Southern Counties Regional Training Collaborative, California Institute of Mental Health, and community-based. A 79-page Participant Workbook, used actively during the training, serves as both a resource guide and a learning aide.Our professional world, mental health services and systems of care are changing!

This course was created to respond to the training needs of supervisors who are evolving with the times as our healthcare system advances. Beginning in 2012, MFT schools are mandated to provide training in recovery oriented care, systems of care and other topics of importance to public mental health.

Whether or not you work in a public setting, you will be supervising interns and trainees who have been educated and prepared for the future. New models for client care mean new challenges for supervisors.

How will health care reform change service delivery systems? How does recovery-oriented care change your supervision process? How do you honor and incorporate your knowledge, training and orientation as a Marriage and Family Therapist within new models of supervision? The training provides 6 CE credits and fulfills the BBS supervision course requirements for licensure renewal. This course is also APA Approved. Check the AAMFT-CA Schedule of Events to find out when and where the next course will be held.

COURSE GOAL AND OBJECTIVES

GOAL:
To present a recovery oriented approach to clinical supervision.

OBJECTIVES:
Participants will be able to:

  • Explain how the Mental Health Services Act requires a paradigm shift to Recovery Oriented Care in public mental health treatment.
  • List the ten Recovery Principles and discuss their implementation within the clinician/consumer interactions.
  • Discuss the concepts and challenges related to current public mental health documentation.
  • Utilizing the concept of parallel process, demonstrate Recovery Oriented supervision.

Specialties: Besides being a professor in both San Diego State University (SDSU) and Alliant International University ’s (AIU) COAMFTE Master’s and Doctorate programs, I have a private practice located in the heart of Mission Valley in San Diego , CA . I see clients on an individual, couple, and family basis. My primary focus is Couples Counseling and aim to create greater levels of trust, safety and stronger emotional bonds through the use of Emotionally Focus Therapy (EFT). Further issues addressed range from relational conflicts, work concerns, and family difficulties to depression, grief, stress, anger, anxiety and addiction. I work with all ages, ethnic and cultural backgrounds. Classes I am currently teaching are Couples Therapy, Sex Therapy, MFT Techniques and Supervision 1 at both the Master’s and Doctoral levels. The Supervision 1 class is the first stage in preparing Doctoral students to become AAMFT Approved Supervisors.
