Supervision Training : I completed the LPCANC 45-Hour Mirror in Mirror Supervision Course in Greensboro, NC, on 10/13/2017. This workshop provided education on supervision models, supervisions skills, The Center for Credentialing and Education Approved Clinical Supervisor Code of Ethics as well as the American Counseling Association Code of Ethics in supervision, cultural competency, experiential mirror in mirror feedback delivery during applied group and individual workshop supervision, and utilization of Interpersonal Process Recall techniques.

Models of Supervision Nature of Supervision: In supervision, I utilize Bernard's Discrimination Model of Supervision. This model of supervision is a social role model that is to be integrative with other models of supervision. This model assumes the supervisory roles of counselor, teacher, and consultant determined by the supervisee's skill building needs to include: intervention skills (sufficient and deficient behaviors and intervention skills), conceptualization skills (formulating and responding to client's presented themes) and personalization skills (personal experience and feelings as it relates to the therapeutic process and multicultural competency). As a teacher, the role of the supervisor is to instruct, inform, and lecture the supervisee to increase competency. As a counselor, the role of the supervisor is to utilize interpersonal parallel process to assist client in separating their issues from client's issues and to assist supervise in self-examination. As supervisee grows in competency, the role of the supervisor shifts to a collaborative consultant role to promote supervisee's self-efficacy.

I will also utilize the Stoltenberg, McNeil, and Delworth's Integrative Developmental Model of Supervision as it utilizes roles of development to include: autonomy, motivation and awareness that span over multiple levels of competency based on specific domains to include: interventions skills, assessment techniques, interpersonal assessment, client conceptualization, individual differences, theoretical orientation, treatment plans and goals, and professional ethics. Supervisee's formative and summative evaluations will reflect these models of supervision.

Confidentiality : Your confidentiality in the supervisor/supervisee relationship is held in the highest regard; however, there are times when there will be provisions of confidentiality. Here are some of the following exceptions: 1) There may be times that I will seek consultation with another professional in regards to either our supervision relationship or concerns regarding your client as part of the ethical decision making model. This information will be limited to the what is essential to the person's understanding of the situation necessary for case consultation. 2) Requested information for a recommendation, certification, employment, or licensure. 3) Confidentiality cannot be guaranteed in the group setting; however, I will encourage confidentiality as based on our ethics. 4) If I am court ordered with a bench warrant or subpoena to testify in regards to your character or actions in a court of law or if I am requested to report to the NBCLPC board due to an ethical complaint. 5) Other limits of confidentiality identified in the ACA Code of Ethics and ACS Code of Ethics and North Carolina Law.

Other Supervisee Responsibilities: You can obtain all NBCLPC required forms for supervision at You will bring all forms that are to be filled out by supervisor to supervision weekly and quarterly.

You are expected to coordinate the necessary steps in your organization and obtain the written permission to ensure that supervisor can review progress notes and other client documentation, as well as perform live supervision and co-supervision with supervisee. You are expected to provide supervisor with written permission from the client for live supervision, audio tapes, video tapes (I prefer video tapes), and co-supervision with supervisee, as the NCBLPC board requires. You will make supervisor aware of your entire case load.

The supervisee will keep a journal to record date and times of supervision, when completed forms are submitted to NCBLPC, what supervisee gained from the weekly supervision, and include supervisee's strengths and weaknesses on the learning process. This journal will be reviewed quarterly.
