Is this course for me?

Deciding to become a supervisor impacts your life, not just your practice. Yes, your supervisees will benefit from having an excellent experience under your supervision; however, I believe there is more to it than that. We need excellent supervisors because our community needs excellent mental health professionals.

  • In 2006, 2,347 Texans died by suicide. Suicide is almost always the result of untreated or under-treated mental illness.
  • Texas spent just $35 per capita on mental health agency services in 2006, or $805.2 million. This was just 1.1 percent of total state spending that year.
  • In 2006, 8,247 children were incarcerated in Texas’s juvenile justice system. Nationally, approximately 70 percent of youth in juvenile justice systems experience mental health disorders, with 20 percent experiencing a severe mental health condition.

Becoming a supervisor requires you to change the way you think about your role in helping people, your profession, and your community. We take this seriously and we believe with every part of our practice, from our licensed professionals to our trainees at Ann’s Place, that everyone deserves an excellent counselor and an excellent counseling experience.

Even if you are anxious about supervising, we know that if you can commit to taking on at least two supervisees, take at least two supervision CEUs every renewal cycle, and allow your supervisees to give away two pro-bono hours each week to your community, you can be part of the solution. To that end, Kate Walker Training Modules will prepare you to Take the Pledge and Take 2:

If you feel a calling to help even more people, and you are ready to become an even greater asset to your profession and your community, then this course is for you. It’s intended to be fun and engaging but also stimulating and in-depth.

Come immerse yourself and invest in your future, your profession, and your world.
