NC clinical supervision for licensure
NATURE OF SUPERVISION
As a supervisor, utilize a development model of supervision, working to identify the supervisee’s current stage of clinical skill and provide feedback and support appropriate to that developmental stage, while at the same time facilitating the supervisee’s progression to the next stage. This scaffolding will encourage supervisee to use current strengths and skills to build new learning and critical thinking.
The role of the supervisor is to ensure quality of client care and continued professional development. Modalities that will be used in supervision will be documentation review and audio recordings or live observation/co-therapy.
The evaluation process will evaluate general competency in overall professional development, general psychotherapy skills, assessment skills, intervention skills, and crisis management.
EXPECTATIONS OF SUPERVISION
All our communication becomes part of the clinical record, which is accessible to you upon request. I will keep confidential anything you say as part of our counseling relationship, with the following exceptions: (a) you direct me in writing to disclose information to someone else, (b) it is determined you are a danger to yourself or others (including child or elder abuse), or (c) I am ordered by a court to disclose information.
I will provide supervisees with consultation, as well as documents that will further their professional development. I will also support their professional organization of clinical supervision hours. I will also submit verification of supervision forms to the NC Board of Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselors and other supervising bodies or when consultation with another professional is needed or I am requested to provide information about your clinical experience in the form of a recommendation for a job, licensure, or certification.
Disclosures made in triadic or group supervision cannot be guaranteed as absolute confidentiality. Although I will take every measure to encourage confidentiality and act appropriately if confidentiality is compromised.
It will be the responsibility of supervisees to adequately prepare for supervision; this will includes but is not limited to readiness to present at least on clinical case scenario, and complete any homework/bibliotherapy or watch assigned videos. Supervisees will also maintain communication to keep supervisor informed of all client issues, progress and any personal clinically relevant changes (status impairment, etc.).
It is also the responsibility of the supervisee to assure maintenance of personal professional liability insurance of $1M single/ $3M aggregate coverage. While the supervision will maintain records of supervision, it is the ultimate responsibility of the supervisee to complete a record at each supervision session.
