Clinical Supervision for Counselors

We offer clinical Supervision to our Trainees, Interns and Associates. Our Clinical Supervisors are experienced and well trained in working with children that have experienced trauma. We offer as much Clinical Supervision that each Therapist in Training needs to count their hours toward licensure. We do not charge our Interns, Trainees and Associates for this service.

Training

At the beginning of each school year, prior to each placement, we offer a 4-day in-service orientation retreat to our counseling & coaching staff. They learn the “nuts and bolts” of their program, HR policies and procedures, and training on topics relevant to the work we are doing in the schools.  We also offer trainings on relevant topics throughout the school year.  Some examples of past trainings are bullying prevention, art therapy, attachment, cultural competency, grief & loss, homelessness, LGBT+ competency, and domestic violence.  These trainings are free to all Harmony At Home staff.
