We will also explore ways that this work positively impacts client outcomes, as well as our personal relationship to our work by preventing burnout and increasing compassion satisfaction.

Walk away with:­

  • Foundational knowledge of positive psychology theory and research to ground your supervision approach
  • Concrete strategies for implementing a positive psychology approach to supervision
  • Helpful handouts that can be used to enhance the supervisory relationship

Art Therapists
The Art Therapy Credentialing Board (ATCB) is now requiring that all Registered and Board Certified Art Therapists receive 6 hours of continuing education in supervision each 5 years.  For those who are up for their 5 year recertification this year, the deadline is June 30, 2024 (*See below).   If you’re not yet due for recertification, this will get you ahead of the game.
This training provides a dynamic means of fulfilling that requirement for those of you who are supervising/training others. It will also serve as well as a means of energizing your work even if you are not.

Rebecca is a master presenter, educator, and storyteller who uses her professional and personal experiences to engage others.  The principles of positive psychology are literally embodied in this workshop, and participants leave with energy and motivation to learn—and do—more in the service of self and other.

Will this be recorded and available if I can’t attend?
It will be recorded but unfortunately to get the CEC’s you must both attend and be present and visible the whole day of the training. The recorded content will be available for those who were there for 72 hours. 

If I’m not able to make the training that day, can I sign up, pay, and watch it later for credit?
The event recording will only available to those who actively attend. In order to get credit, you must have attended in full the day of the presentation.

Can I attend for part of one training day and make up the time on the other day that’s offered? No. Because the training is greatly influenced by the contributions of the participants who are there, which shapes examples that we might refer to as we go along in the training, the two trainings are not interchangeable even though the core content is the same.

I will be attending/How will long will I have access to the recording?
At the end of the training, you will be e-mailed access to a PDF of the Powerpoint and the video recording of the presentation for 72 hours after the presentation.

How will I receive my CEC certificate?
You will be given a link to complete the workshop evaluation survey and then a certificate will be e-mailed to you.

What about Social Workers, Psychologist, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists, and other mental health professionals?
Most State Behavioral Health Boards accept NBCC approved credits for their other licensed mental health professional.  However,  we cannot guarantee that each does and we strongly advise that you check with your respective state board to be sure.

Can I attend even if I don’t need CECs?
Absolutely! While we will be taking a mental health professionals’ perspective, this workshop is applicable to and designed to support and engage all helping professionals.

Are group rates available?
Group discounts are available for people registering from the same practice or organization. Please contact Paige for inquiries.

The principles of positive psychology are literally embodied in this workshop, and participants leave with energy and motivation to learn—and do—more in the service of self and other.” – Juliet King, (PhDc), ATR-BC, LPC, LMHC 

“I loved the balance of content, research, personal/professional anecdotes, breakout sessions, art making, and discussion! The variety kept the momentum going and really delivered so much information in a very short about of time.”

“There was a lot of information on Positive Psychology in the supervisory relationship which was useful to me. I really liked this topic and approach to supervision.”

“I appreciated the knowledge and scope of information provided, and discussion of theoretical framework, as well as the approaches and directives which may be used in the context of therapy.”

“The Case Study presented had many different interesting angles that challenged supervisory issues. I learned a lot, Thank you.”

“I really appreciated the grounding in positive psychology theory, because I know not everyone is familiar with it, and it was helpful to have as a refresher. Some of the examples were really useful to have to give the material context – like the case study.”

“Thorough, well-developed information combined with welcoming approach, weaving in personal information to imagine how to apply concepts.”

“I appreciated real life examples and the clear manner in which the information was presented. As a new supervisor, there are several things, such as the purpose and structure of supervision, that I will most take away and use in my career as I set up to have my first intern. The use of positive psychology and a strengths-based approach is most like the style I prefer to use in my work in pediatric palliative care and will transfer well to my supervisory role.

“Paige and Rebecca’s style of presenting was so very useful.”

“I really appreciated the interaction between participants and the very interactive nature of the workshop.”

“I loved the conversational style and the experiential nature of the workshop!”
