Soliant invites you to watch our latest webinar, “Making the Mentoring Connection” presented by Dr. Taína Jiménez López. All speech and language pathologists have been mentored throughout their careers, whether it was during our graduate practicums, our clinical fellowships, or as professionals. At some point, most of us are asked to reciprocate and provide guidance to an early career professional or to seasoned professionals in our work settings. Mentoring can occur in any setting and should have a purpose that guides the relationship between mentor and mentee. The transition from practitioner to mentor should be intentional to make a rewarding connection for both parties. Participants in this seminar will understand their role in this process, review ethical and legal considerations, and acquire strategies for a successful mentoring relationship.
1. Describe the role of mentor and supervisor in the mentorship relationship.
2. Summarize ethical and legal considerations when establishing a mentorship connection.
3. Identify strategies for a successful supervision relationship.
