Competent supervision is necessary for producing skilled clinicians, for resolving difficult situations in the supervisory relationship, and in helping clinicians resolve difficult situations with clients. Several key vignettes will be addressed that involve scenarios that challenge the supervisor-supervisee relationship, create opportunities for building supervisee's clinical competence, and/or involve stuck cases that need to be resolved.
