After providing a brief overview of the empirical literature on the major models and methods of clinical supervision, this session will review the salient ethical and legal considerations related to the role of clinical supervisor. Best practice standards will be explored both in terms of professional ethics and in terms of liability management with special attention given to the burgeoning practice of distance supervision. Through a case vignette, participants will identify the ethical dilemmas at stake, address the ethical and legal missteps of the supervisor on the case, and develop an alternative course of action after considering one’s professional ethical codes and standards, relevant case laws, and an ethical decision-making model.
1. Participants will identify relevant ethical and legal issues associated with the clinical supervisor role.
2. Participants will summarize the empirical literature related to the best practice standards in clinical supervision.
3. Participants will identify unique ethical and legal issues related to distance supervision.
