Drawing on findings from evidence-based programs of CBT supervision, this presentation will highlight the essential contents and processes of CBT supervision. The following sub-topics will be described: (1) The supervisory relationship, (2) the chief responsibilities and teaching methods of a CBT supervisor, (3) promoting ethical behavior and cross-cultural sensitivity in supervisees, (4) helping supervisees to conceptualize cases to assist in their use of techniques, and (5) providing feedback and formal evaluations in a timely, constructive manner. Multi-modal aspects of the methods of supervision will be highlighted, including the use of readings, audio-visual recordings, role-modeling, and role-playing.
