Continuing Education

For many years, AGAPE has provided training modules for mental health professionals and students through our Therapy Training Institute. These courses provide opportunities for mental health professionals to enhance their skills in specific areas while earning continuing education (CE) credits. CE credits are provided through Lipscomb University’s master’s degree program in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. CE credits may also be made available through the American Psychological Association (APA) for specific training sessions. AGAPE is approved by the American Psychological Association to sponsor continuing education for psychologists. AGAPE maintains responsibility for this program and its content.

Our upcoming course offerings are listed below.

Issues of Multiculturalism in Supervision

Taught by Darlene Perry, Ph.D., Clinical and Forensic Psychologist, Owner P & S Evolutions, LLC

Zoom meeting information will be provided upon registration.

The United States is becoming more racially/ethnically diverse, older, non-denominational, and female represented. This workshop will cover topics relevant in clinical supervision to support multicultural supervision competencies in this changing America. The training facilitates dialogue on the requirements and relevance of multicultural competence. Common misconceptions and cultural clashes will be explored to create awareness and sensitivity to barriers that undermine effective supervision. Guidelines and strategies also will be addressed.

Participants will:

  1. Examine multicultural supervision competencies 
  2. Discuss the relevance of multicultural supervision competence and the impact in clinical practice  
  3. Analyze self-awareness of personal worldview and the impact within the supervisor-supervisee relationship 
  4. Practice the application of culturally responsive tools to reduce biases and cultural resistance in maintaining positive supervisee relationships and overseeing the care of diverse populations

Intended Audience: Mental health professionals working with couples, families, and individuals; pastoral counselors; medical staff working in mental health sites
