Refresher Options for RMFT Supervisors and RMFT Mentors
In accordance with best practice in supervision, all supervisors (including Supervisor Mentors) are required to demonstrate their currency in the practice of supervision by completing a Refresher process, once every five years.
CAMFT offers multiple ways to meet the Refresher requirement: we hope these options will not only help to keep our supervisors current, but will help to build a strong network of supervisors and supervisor-mentors so that they may provide active leadership within our organization and within the field of Relational and Family Therapy. Please be sure to read the “Also required section” below.
You may choose from any of the choices below for your refresher.
a) CAMFT approved Refresher Courses.
b) If you are able to access the AAMFT Supervisor Refresher program (i.e., if you are also an AAMFT supervisor), we will accept that option.
c) You may take another program which is directed specifically toward the practice of supervision and which you feel would enhance the way you work. (see list below for examples)
(Minimum 5 hours) (Canadian Content strongly preferred; Pre-approval required)
e) You may assemble a list of readings to create a course of self-study (see list of topics above);
Also Required: Reflection and Integration
To integrate and reflect learnings gained from whichever option is chosen, supervisors will be asked to:
2) Revisit their Philosophy of Supervision paper, identifying what has changed for them, and what remains fundamental, and write a one-page reflection/self-assessment, incorporating their learning from their current activities, thereby creating a ‘refreshed’ Philosophy of Supervision document, to be submitted as evidence of the completion of their Refresher process.
