What is Supervision:

Supervision is “ensuring that the extent, kind, and quality of counseling performed is consistent with the education, training, and experience of the person being supervised; reviewing client/patient records, monitoring and evaluating assessment, diagnosis, and treatment decisions of the intern or trainee; monitoring and evaluating the ability of the intern or trainee to provide services at the site(s) where he or she will be practicing and to the particular clientele being served; and ensuring compliance with laws and regulations governing the practice of marriage and family therapy. Supervision shall include that amount of direct observation, or review of audio or video tapes of therapy, as deemed appropriate by the supervisor.” [Section 1833 of Division 18, Title 16, of the California Code of Regulations.] 

Supervision Provides Four Core Functions:    (Bernard & Goodyear, 1992; Loganbill et al., 1982; Watkins, 1997)

  • Acquisition and improvement of therapeutic skills and knowledge
  • Quality control and accountability to the client and to the public
  • Transmission of the culture of psychotherapy including ethical behavior
  • Professional development and growth

As a Supervisor, I can:

Provide a Supervisor’s “MESS”

  • Model professional behavior
  • Enable Trainee / Associate mentoring
  • Support Trainee / Associate clinical knowledge & skills as well as professional (and personal) growth
  • Suggest Trainee / Associate self-care skills 

Co-create an Environment of Psychological Safety

  • To take risks during Individual Supervision without feeling insecure or embarrassed
  • To feel safe enough to feel vulnerable during supervision
  • With a shared belief that supervision is safe place for interpersonal risk taking
  • In which the Trainee / Associate feels accepted and respected
