Clinical Supervision & Training
Over this past year, in partnership with Brakins Consulting & Psychological Services, the African American Child Wellness Institute has offered over 1220 hours of clinical and licensure-readiness training to African American trainees seeking supervision and licensure.
So far, the collaboration has provided over 110 mentorship hours per year, 290 individual supervision hours, and over 98 hours of group consultation and group supervision hours focused on learning culturally congruent skills in providing mental health support to children and adults of African descent. In its’ history, these organizations through coaching, supervision and mentoring work have assisted over 35 African American clinicians to gain licensure as Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists, Licensed Psychologists, Licensed Social Workers, Licensed Professional Counselors/Clinical Counselors, and Licensed Alcohol and Drug Therapists. Many of the individuals who have been trained at this facility have gone on to become independent practitioners, organizational leaders, and clinical directors at other organizations.
