Course Description

This is the second module in a three-part series designed to meet the 15-hour training required to supervise prelicensure registered associates: associate clinical social workers (ACSWs), associate marriage and family therapists (AMFTs), and associate professional clinical counselors (APCCs). Module 1 introduced the types and definitions of supervision, the developmental stages for supervisors and supervisees, supervision styles, clinical supervision models, and California legal requirements. Module 2 explores specific strategies for assessing supervisees’ strengths and weaknesses, creating and implementing a supervisory contract or agreement, developing a strong working alliance, setting professional boundaries, addressing challenges within the supervisory relationship, and evaluating supervisees’ performances. Module 3 explores critical legal, ethical, and cultural considerations in clinical supervision and includes issues related to liability, dual relationships and boundaries, informed consent and confidentiality, and ethical decision-making. Each of the three modules has an online posttest that must be passed with a score of 80% or better to print a certificate of completion.
