He received national recognition during the 2015 ACES Annual Conference held October 7-11 in Philadelphia, Pa.
Constructive Clinical Supervision explores an approach to clinical supervision that integrates constructivist ideas of human growth and change with several theories of psychotherapy.  The ideas are applicable to supervision occurring in a wide range of settings, including schools, mental health clinics, and medical facilities. With its focus on exploring and honoring client, supervisee, and supervisor diversity, Constructive Clinical Supervision provides valuable tools for facilitating cultural competence in both supervisees and supervisors. Read more about Guiffrida's book.
