About the Event

Using the POTT Model Philosophies in Gatekeeping as MFT Supervisors and Educators

Session Description

MFT supervisors and educators are tasked with the responsibility of clinically training MFTs, while gatekeeping for the profession. Research has identified that MFT Trainees often experience shame and self-criticism as they begin training as therapists. Therefore, when an educator or supervisor identifies that further skill remediation is necessary to meet MFT core competencies, the shame and self-criticism may get exacerbated and create further barriers to effective skill development. The philosophy and structure of the POTT model are rich additions to marriage and family therapy training. This model encourages therapists to bring their full selves to the therapeutic experience, including their cultural, spiritual, and emotional experiences to attune and guide treatment, thus privileging marginalized experiences. Rather than MFT Trainees suppressing their vulnerabilities, the POTT model encourages identification of shared “woundedness” to foster empathic connection to clients and guide treatment interventions. Use of the POTT model can enhance therapists’ self-compassion, clinical judgment, and therapeutic alliance. One helpful resource in MFT gatekeeping practices has been performance-based contracts. The POTT model philosophy can be applied to support performance-based clinical skills remediation. This presentation will begin with a summary of research on gatekeeping strategies and challenges identified by MFT supervisors and educators. Followed by a brief overview of the POTT philosophy and its benefits for clinical training.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Participants will learn strategies for remediation and gatekeeping in the MFT field. Learning
  • Participants will be able to identify how the philosophy of the Person of the Therapist Training Model and its “dual process” of identification and differentiation can be implemented in the remediation process for MFT Trainees.
  • Participants will be able to discern remediation strategies for implementation in their own supervisory and academic roles.
