Supervision is a distinct professional practice employing a collaborative relationship that has both facilitative and evaluative components, that extends over time, which has the goals of enhancing the professional competence and science-informed practice of the supervisee, monitoring the quality of services provided, protecting the public, and providing a gatekeeping function for entry into the profession. We address the following domains of supervision: supervisor competence, diversity, supervisory relationship, professionalism, assessment/ evaluation/ feedback, problems of professional competence, and ethical, legal, and regulatory considerations. Students will have the opportunity to discuss and integrate the subject matter of this course with their practicum experiences.
