Supervision Training

Dr. Ken Bateman has been teaching the 40-hour supervision course as outlined by both the Licensed Marriage and Family Therapy Board and the Licensed Professional Counselor Board since 2005. Dr. Bateman’s Supervision 40 course is an interactive and experiential small group course. Typically, the course includes four in-class sessions, two one month and two the next with outside classwork to be completed in the interim between the two sets of classes.

This is not a cookie cutter course taught the same year end and year out. Dr. Bateman keeps his course current and relevant. Though many of the study materials between the two sets of classes is the same one year to the next. The course is not. He includes guest speakers, live examples of supervision with current supervisees, panel discussions, interactive discussions and exchanges of ideas, and so much more. His courses are organized, materials and assignments clear and easily managed.
