Consultation and Supervision
What is it?
Clinical supervision is a process by which a licensed mental health professional offers support and oversight to a trainee mental health professional. A supervisor acts as a guide to provide clinical knowledge and experience, support, consultation, and other forms of support to assist you with your development as a mental health professional. Supervisors also act in a gatekeeping capacity to ensure that each mental health trainee is conducting themselves professionally, ethically, and legally.
Consultation is a similar process by which a licensed mental health professional offers information, expertise, or advice to another licensed mental health professional or an organization. In this process the consultant and consultee will identify consultation goals and co-create a plan to reach those goals.
