Supervisor Training

APSWI in collaboration with the National APS Training Partnership and Protective Services Operations Committee (PSOC) is working to develop APS Supervisor Core Competency training. Four instructor-led modules are available.

APS Supervisor Core Competency Training

Supervisor as Trainer

This interactive training will allow APS Supervisors to learn how to define involuntary services and discuss the case review format for determining when involuntary intervention may be indicated, identify those situations where the client’s immediate safety takes precedence over the client’s right to self determination, explore the ethical issues in the worker’s decision to use involuntary intervention, and more.

Enrich Your Supervision: Using Transfer of Learning Tools to Coach Your Staff

APS Supervisors are instrumental in supporting staff’s professional development. This interactive virtual workshop will walk participants through innovative and practical coaching resources to upgrade their staff’s efficiency in risk assessment and documentation skills. The showcased resources will allow their staff to deepen their critical thinking skills using a supportive and guided process. During the workshop, participants will connect with other APS Supervisors and Trainers during brief breakout groups and live discussions to brainstorm how these resources can be implemented in their APS programs.
