Via Hope CFP Supervisor Training
This unique one-day training introduces current and prospective supervisors of Certified Family Partners (CFPs) to the value of this vital profession, the core competencies CFPs are trained in, their Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct, and especially the services they provide.
The family peer support provided by family partners significantly decreases suffering and despair on the part of the families they serve and are an invaluable adjunct to clinical services.
Also covered in this training is information about:
- What appropriate supervision does and does not include,
- How to plan supervision for a highly mobile workforce that spends much of its time in the field,
- Special considerations in supervising newer family partners, and
- Key areas to focus on for successful supervision of family partners.
The course also presents sample ads for hiring family partners, and provides some example interview questions.
The course is usually held in the Austin metro area following the last day of the CFP basic certification training (on either Thursday or Friday). The course is typically offered twice a year. See the calendar for more details.
The next training is April 12th in Austin, deadline February 28th. Apply here.
