Online Continuing Education

  1. Providing Solution-Focused Supervision in a Developmental Framework - learn about the developmental features of counselor trainees and Solution-Focused Counseling techniques that can be employed with them in supervision. This video serves as an orientation to the clinical aspects of supervision.

  2. Clinical Supervision:  The Discrimination Model - learn about Bernard’s model of supervising counselor trainees. This is a “re-training” video for supervisors who require additional and/or updated training in supervision.

Supervisors of counseling students are eligible to receive one (1) continuing education (CE) credit for free by watching one video and answering ten questions pertaining to it (must answer 70% of the questions correctly).  Supervisors of non-MTSU Professional Counseling students are eligible to receive continuing education credit by answering the quiz questions and submitting a check for $15.00 (made out to “MTSU”) for each video to Robin Lee, Ph.D., Department of Educational Leadership, 1301 E. Main Street, Box 54, Murfreesboro, TN  37132.  Answers to quiz questions should be submitted to Dr. Lee at:

(Middle Tennessee State University is an approved provider of continuing education by the National Board of Certified Counselors - NBCC.  Watching either video and obtaining a passing score on the corresponding quiz (i.e., 70% correct) will entitle the supervisor to 1 continuing education (CE) clock hour of training credit.)
