Russell Gainer, LCSW-S

I believe Clinical Supervision to be a dynamic process by which the creative influences of your experience and the synergy of the Group drives skill development and hones expertise. I focus on building the clinicians ability to help the “stuck” client move forward to achieve their goals and help them put their life together in a more fulfilling way. What do you do after the client emotionally comes unglued – how do you help them put the pieces back together so they can still function? How do you identify what the “next right thing” is in Therapy? I use group discussions, case studies, book and movie evaluations for examples, review of Title 22 of our Rules, special Topic Assignments, explore documentation issues, talk about billing, marketing and professional presence, plus hold special sessions with outside presenters and singular topics to help deliver an energetic Supervision experience.
