F22-2004 Clinical Supervision: What Does It Really Mean ?

Total Credits: 3 including 3 Supervision CEs

2000 Supervision
Colette Walker Thomas, LCSW-C |  Kia S. Morris, LCSW-C
Course Levels:
3 Hours 15 Minutes



Clinical supervision is a commitment that requires a significant amount of time for the LCSW-C and can sometimes be viewed as cumbersome. The committed supervisor agrees to, but is not limited to providing guidance, support, clinical case oversight, ethical role modeling, and case review to clinical staff. When a LCSW-C agrees to supervise, they are in essence placing their credibility and Maryland licensure on the line for the clinical work of those they supervise in the work place. It is imperative that supervisors know their role and the commitment.
