Evidence-Based Supervision: Mentoring Future SLPs

Tuesday, December 12, 2017
3:00 pm – 4:00 pm MST

Cynthia Fangman Farrell, MS, CCC-SLP
Cynthia Fangman Farrell is an Associate Clinical Professor in the NAU Speech-Language and Hearing Clinic for Full-Time graduate students who are seeking a master’s degree in Clinical Speech-Language Pathology.  She is a Full-Time course instructor and clinical supervisor for Communication Sciences & Disorders 602:  Clinical Practicum in Speech-Language Pathology.  Her professional background includes over 30 years of clinical supervision of future SLP’s.  Cynthia is involved in clinical research with focus areas of evidence-based graduate student training/supervision, pediatric feeding/swallowing, and inter-professional education/collaboration.  These research findings have been disseminated at national and state speech/and language and audiology conferences in oral seminars and poster presentations.  She is chair of the Arizona Speech-Language-Hearing Association Early Childhood Committee.   Cynthia is a member of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association and the Arizona Speech-Language-Hearing Association.

Most SLPs are thrust into the role of supervisors at some point in their careers.  It has been assumed that the supervisory process facilitates the professional growth of supervisor and supervisee.  In a professional climate that is making supervision more intentional and a distinct area of practice, SLPs are seeking evidence-based practices and resources.  This live webinar will provide supervision methodologies, skill competency curriculum, and functional strategies through real-life case studies.  Rewards and challenges in the art of clinical supervision will also be discussed.

Learner Outcomes
After completing this course, participants will be able to describe three stages of supervision, describe the three supervisory styles, list three clinical competencies for supervisors and list three evidence-based strategies for effective supervision.

The Webinar is free for ArSHA members and $25 for non-members.
Note: this replay of the live webinar will be available until December 11, 2018.
