This course will cover updates in the requirements for licensure for clinical social workers in the State of Missouri, since 2018. We will also review the basic requirements for documentation of supervision for clinical social work licensure. Following a review of relevant rules changes and documentation requirements, which is expected to take about 30 minutes, the remainder of the course will be devoted to a discussion of the particular papers sent to those registering for this course, and a more general discussion of some key elements in initiating and sustaining a supervisory relationship with a master’s-level social worker hoping to learn the skills necessary to practice psychodynamic psychotherapy. There will be an opportunity for sharing experiences about effective ways to facilitate learning of psychodynamic concepts based on the experiences of attendees.
