Shalem is pleased to be able to offer a range of professional workshops and trainings this fall. From training leaders in FaithCARE to equipping new clinical supervisors, Shalem continues to provide opportunities for clinical and professional development to those in the helping professions in Ontario and beyond.
DDP Train the Trainers
In September Shalem hosted a Train the Trainers Program for Group Faciliators working in the areas of Attachment and Dyadic Development Psychotherapy (DDP). This training equipped participants, generally already working as DDP therapists, to lead groups for parents and caregivers of children who are not able to live with their birth parents.
This virtual training was co-led by Shalem’s Betty Brouwer and Kim Golding, a Clinical Psychologist working in Worcestershire, England. Betty is a certified DDP practitioner, consultant and trainer with 25 years of clinical experience. Kim is co-author with Dan Hughes and Julie Hudson of the 2019 book Healing relational trauma with attachment-focused interventions: Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy with Children and Families. Given their combined knowledge and experience, this training was a very rich learning experience.
Clinical Supervision Training
Coming up in October and November is a course for therapists and social workers who want to develop their skills as supervisors. The Fundamentals of Clinical Supervision Course will be offered over 5 days between October 24th and November 8th, four of which we plan to have in person, and one of which will be online.
This advanced clinical course is designed for experienced therapists who want to expand their practice to include training and supervising of other clinicians. It meets the requirements for those who hope to offer supervision within the framework of the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO), as well as those seeking supervisory status with the Canadian Association of Marriage and Family Therapists (CAMFT).
The course will be led by a team of experienced Clinical Supervisors and trainers: Jennifer Myrie, and Susan Winter Fledderus, both from Shalem, and Brenda Bolliger, a valued colleague. The course is engaging, blending theory and practice through academic, interactive and reflective exercises designed for professional development.
As part of our commitment to clinical excellence and our desire to contribute to the development of the profession, Shalem seeks to offer a range of workshops, trainings and events. Keep an eye on the events page of our website for the latest information about what is coming up.
