Practicum and Supervision
Dr. Metzger provides clinical supervision for unlicensed professionals delivering evidence-based services focused on reducing anxiety and mood symptoms, racial stress, substance use, risky sexual behaviors, post-traumatic stress, and various mental health concerns. In addition, Dr. Metzger conducts supervision to enhance therapists’ competency in culturally sensitive assessment and treatment of trauma-related symptoms with a specific focus on ethnic minority children and young adults. To that end, supervision provides trainees with up-to-date information related to rates of trauma exposure and trauma symptoms across youth age, gender, ethnic/racial group, and socio-economic status, and also focuses on mandated reporting and related cultural considerations.
