This is an intermediate course on Supervision which outlines strategies for providing competency-based supervisory practices that limit risk and enhance professional development for all involved. While it is relatively easy to read about how to supervise, it is far more challenging to provide supervision that facilities learning, promotes passion for the profession, and encourages trainees to excel in their areas of expertise. For those who currently supervise, as well as those who are considering providing supervision for the first time, this course will both present clinical ideas and provide vignettes that will enhance your critical thinking and ethical decision-making.

This course is comprised of ten (10) articles. The first two articles provide basic information about creating optimal supervision and maintaining best practices for the supervisory experience. The next four articles review ethics in supervision and include models for ethical decision-making. Laws and Regulations are identified (especially for CA), and a Supervisorial "self-test" is provided. Clinical vignettes are provided to challenge your knowledge regarding supervision and to promote ethical decision-making skills. Finally, resources are identified for supervisors and trainees.
