Clinical Supervision at William James College 

William James College offers group supervision for practicing school psychologists. Clinical supervision promotes reflective practice; supports ongoing professional development, affords consultation on legal and ethical issues, and helps practitioners effectively address the challenges of providing school psychological services. Clinical supervision is essential for ongoing development of the skills, knowledge, and professional behaviors that enable schools psychologists to function at a high level and to engage in independent practice. Two groups are currently available (Mondays at 5 or Thursdays at 5); additional groups may be added as needed. To sign up, click the register button below:
