This process used to be informal and occurred essentially through osmosis.Osmosis refers to the supervisor simply doing either what had been done to him or her as a supervisee or doing something different to prevent harm.Even in the pipelines of training for the various mental health professions, over half of supervisees in training are not receiving systematic preparation to be supervisors.Individuals beginning to supervise require knowledge of the latest information and standards comprising best practices.Programs that do not qualify for NBCC credit are clearly identified. Net dba Social Work Courses is solely responsible for all aspects of the programs. Net dba Social Work Courses is approved by the Ohio Counselor, Social Worker, & Marriage and Family Therapist Board (OH-CSWMFT) to offer continuing education for counselors, social workers, and MFTs. The materials in this course are based on the most current information and research available to the author at the time of writing.
Supervision may well be the highest calling in psychology and other mental health professions.The self-assessment that is the foundation of supervision planning should be conducted using a competencies measure, described later in this course.Contextually, supervision consists of relationships among client(s), supervisee (therapist), supervisor, clinical setting of therapy, community, and the associated influences of culture/diversity in its broadest sense (ethnicity, religion, race, gender, gender identity, educational level, age, etc.) and the discipline(s) in which one is practicing.It was a skill passed from generation to generation of clinicians.When the Association of State and Provincial Psychology Boards (ASPPB) convened their first task force on supervision, they expressed surprise that – given the critical role of supervision in protection of the public and in the training of psychologists – that there were no established requirements for graduate level training in supervision (ASPPB, 2003).
