Professional Clinical Supervision

Choosing the right clinical supervisor is the single most important factor in clinician success and preparation for full licensure practice.  The relationship between the supervisor and the clinician associate is essential.  As you are researching Supervisor options, please ask potential supervisors these questions:


  • How long has the supervisor been practicing as a clinician?  How much of this was in direct practice verses adminstrative work?

  • What populations does the clinician have expertise in treating?

  • How many successful clinicians has the Supervisor provided supervision to?

  • How long has the Supervisior been providing clinical supervision?

  • Will they provide you with a list of past supervisees to speak with about their experience?

  • Have they completed any specialized trainings in providing clinical supervision?
