Qualified Supervisor Training

How is Florida Mental Health Licensure Services different from other providers teaching the Qualified Supervisor Training?

  1. We provide you with a Clinical Supervision/Professional Development Manual and instructions for use with supervisees. This manual is designed to become a unique, personal, reference manual for the supervisee. It has been extensively field-tested and has gained excellent reviews.
  2. We will provide you with already made supervision contracts, consent forms, supervision notes template and much more.
  3. We use multiple modalities for teaching which include role plays, vignettes, videos of actual supervision from different supervision models, power point and group discussions. We believe in learning from best practices of others and using the group to open discussion of how supervision may be applied to multiple different types of professional settings.

We Will Come to You

The Florida Qualified Supervisor Training is offered upon request throughout Florida. If interested in hosting a training at your location call Kellie Garza M.A., LMHC, CST at 321-403-703 or kelliegarzalmhc@gmail.com. It is offered as a “bare bones” training and does not include such amenities as luncheon buffets, large convention centers, etc. In this manner, costs can be kept to a minimum, the training can be individualized, and the training can be completed in the most time and cost-effective manner possible. In brief, the experienced, qualified, CEU provider comes to the participant rather than the participant traveling many miles at great cost, requiring hotel accommodations, etc…
