Completion of this class will result in the receipt of three (3) continuing education hours.
Rebecca Cammy will introduce participants to the novel meaning-centered supervision (MCS) curriculum (an adaptation of meaning-centered psychotherapy) which guides healthcare social workers in connecting a sense of meaning and purpose in work as they develop personal and professional identities. MCS includes seven structured sessions in which social workers craft narratives around themes of professional attitude, living and creating work life, and connections with the social work profession. In this workshop, participants will be trained in the full MCS series concepts and themes and utilize the experiential exercises in a personal self-reflective meaning-making process. MCS curriculum materials will be provided for participants to utilize with their mentees in their own supervision practice. Application of the course material to additional staff support settings will also be discussed.
