Therapy is private. As such, trainee therapists and therapists seeking additional insight from colleagues use clinical supervision to sharpen their skills.
During clinical supervision, a trainee provider meets with a more experienced provider to discuss cases, treatment strategies, and other important topics.
Due to the stressful nature of day-to-day counseling and therapy work, clinical supervision also provides an outlet and resource for therapists to practice self care.
Additionally, supervision is a requirement that varies with the degree, but is usually a year or longer. For example, in most states, licensed clinical social workers (LCSW) must complete at least 3,000 hours of clinical supervision.
Many therapists feel overwhelmed by the requirements of licensure – especially clinical supervision. Some are unsure where to begin their search for clinical supervision. Inquire for opportunities at Mind Over Matters.
