- Seminars on Supervision – Everyone is invited to attend. Seminars on Supervision (SOS) coordinated by Debbie Mansell. Individuals in supervisory training will have an opportunity to present materials, personal issues or to schedule a mock committee experience with peers and supervisors from the region. These seminars are also a great opportunity for supervisors to share their approach and/or to see others work with those in supervisory education.
- *Peer Review: Although some individuals have peer review more often, ACPE supervisors are required to have a peer review every 5 years (Standards 411.6). Even though there is not a scheduled time on the program for Peer Review individuals may arrange a Peer Review at his/her convenience during free time or anytime during the year. If you plan to have a peer review, you will need to do some written work in preparation. The Peer Review Guidelines and report form will be included in your conference folder.
