In parts 1 and 2, the learner will evaluate their own supervisory style and reflect on supervisory responsibilities. Next, they will evaluate their expectations in comparison to what their staff need from them in their daily work. In part 3, the course will delve into the National Child Traumatic Stress Network’s (NCTSN) Core Competencies in Secondary Traumatic Stress for supervision. The participants will learn each competency and be able to define the key terminology in the concepts presented. Through a problem-based scenario, learners will gain in-the-moment feedback and develop critical thinking skills that they will be able to apply to their daily practice. Part 3 utilizes materials from the NCTSN Core Curriculum in Child Trauma (CCCT). The CCCT is designed to raise the standard of care nationwide for youth and families who have experienced trauma by raising the standard of education and training in core principles of childhood traumatic stress for their care providers. The CCCT is an experiential learning tool that engages learners in a small group setting to discuss and reason their way through detailed case studies. This section will use a highly interactive problem-based approach to help learners acquire trauma-informed knowledge and skills in critical reasoning, judgment, and decision-making.
