Clinical Supervision

What is clinical supervision?

Clinical supervision is a structured process of a senior (based on clinical experience, not age) clinician overseeing and providing guidance in the development of a junior clinician over an extended period of time—typically a few months to years. 

How does one become Ms. Todd’s supervisee?

Supervise will send contract to the board.

Board will send approval (usually about 2+ weeks) to Ms. Todd.

Ms. Todd will inform supervisee of receipt of approval and schedule initial supervision appointment accordingly.

Becoming a supervisor is a huge responsibility. The supervisor becomes legally and ethically responsible for the supervisee’s conduct with his/her clients. As such it is important to be aware of a supervisee’s clinical strengths and growth areas from the get-go. In using a primarily developmental model of supervision, it is important for Ms. Todd to be aware of the level of supervision interventions needed by a supervisee from the beginning of the relationship so that there is seamlessness in clients’ care.

How does Ms. Todd calculate her supervision rate?

Ms. Todd calculates her supervision rate based on the following factors:
