As discussed in this module, the purpose of clinical supervision is to ensure the welfare of the client, help the supervisee grow professionally, and provide remediation services if necessary. Supervision is a distinct professional activity aimed at helping the supervisee enhance his or her level of professional competence and is used both pre- and post-licensure. Your discussion in this module has two parts related to the issues of supervision and competence. In the first part, you will identify what characteristics make a competent supervisor and how you can identify these characteristics in real life. In the second part, you will discuss regulatory bodies and their roles in protecting clients and the public from unethical behavior on the part of counseling professionals. The purpose of this assignment is for you to understand not only resources, which are available to you (i.e., clinical supervision), but also regulatory agencies, which protect the public from harm by professionals.
In a minimum of 300 words, respond to the following (Note: Please include both parts of this assignment as one post):
Part 1: In your training, you will work with a clinical supervisor for practicum and internship experiences:
Part 2: Take the perspective of a licensed or credentialed professional counselor (whose financial livelihood depends upon being perceived as a competent and well-prepared professional):
As part of your responses, you must specifically integrate the following:
Support your discussion with resources from professional literature in your response. Professional literature may include the Argosy University online library resources; relevant textbooks; peer-reviewed journal articles; and websites created by professional organizations, agencies, or institutions (.edu or .gov).
Remember: Do not directly quote from these sources without providing your own analysis and summary of the information—demonstrate that you understand the concepts being discussed and that you are able to apply your readings to real-life clinical work. Any direct quotations must be noted as such in proper APA style. Again, you are required to provide specific examples to illustrate your points.
