Clinical Supervision and Consultation
The Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association says that “Clinical supervision is an essential component of the education and training of counsellors and psychotherapists. It is the “signature pedagogy” across the mental health professions and the “cornerstone of professional development. Clinical supervision has its own history, theoretical knowledge base, models, and related.”
Today, obtaining supervision has become increasingly commonplace as counsellors and therapists sought ongoing development in their practice.
What do Clinical Supervisors do?
- provide oversight and support
- provide an unbiased and professional point of view and constructive feedback
- help their supervisees reflect, review and learn
- guide and correct when required
- provide a sounding board and advice for challenging cases.
Having regular supervision is a part of good, ethical practice.
In British Columbia, clinical supervisors must have achieved a certain standard of experience and training before they can provide supervision.
