Pursuing Private Practice is passionate about providing supervision for dietitians
Supervision not only protects you as a provider, but also protects your clients’ welfare and ensures services are safe, ethical, and competent.
The Pursuing Private Practice team offers both individual supervision sessions and group supervision intensives.
Supervision improves your ability to provide value to your clients by enhancing your practice as a clinician while honoring your boundaries. This prevents burnout and also allows us to practice what we preach to our clients:
self-care is vital!
We believe all dietitians can benefit from supervision, whether you're brand new to the field or an advanced provider.
Supervision is a place to discuss cases and topics, but more so, it is a reflective space for you to interrogate with kindness and support what is coming up for you in relation to your work as a dietitian.
Similar to the counseling process, we have certain topics that we would like to cover AND we want to meet you where you're at as a dietitian.
Supervision sessions may include case consultation, education and skill development, role-playing, as well as time to process feelings the supervisee may be experiencing from their work.
Some topics may include:
- Counseling Skills
- Nutrition Education
- Motivational Interviewing Techniques
- Client’s early termination
- Higher Level Of Care (HLOC) recommendations
- Intuitive Eating and Non-Diet Philosophies
- Health at Every Size (R)
- Weight-Inclusive Care
- Body Image
- Working with teams
- Preventing Burnout
How it works:
We would be honored to work with you!
Both of our supervision offers may count toward IAEDP CEDS certification.
Joining a supervision group is a powerful experience.
Participating in a group allows you to gain insight into your own practice and hear other cases and topics presented. This creates multiple opportunities to learn from others and elevates clinical skills faster.
Our Supervision Groups are 5 weeks long and will meet on the same day and time each of the 5 weeks. Each group will have no more than 6 dietitians so everyone may present a case and have personalized time for Q&A.
During this week, we will have introductions and general Q&A about topics that are important to the group
Weeks 2, 3 and 4
Each clinician may present for a case consultation. If there are fewer than 6 people in the group, there will be more time for Q&A about topics or time for discussion among the group.
During our last week together, we will meet and have a general Q&A session about important topics for the group.
what to expect
When it's time for case consultation, each dietitian may bring a case (or topic) to supervision when it's their turn to present. You may choose to use our supervision "template" guide to present a case, or just talk openly and honestly about your case or topic. You will receive dedicated time for supervision by a Supervisor and also have the opportunity to receive support and feedback from the group.
