This course prepares fully licensed clinicians to meet the State of Minnesota course criteria for Approved Supervisor status for the Minnesota Board of Behavioral Health and Therapy for both LPC and LPCC supervisors). We are currently seeking formal approval from the Minnesota Board of Marriage and Family Therapy (LMFT supervisors) and hope to have that in the next few weeks.
The course does not meet the requirements for the AAMFT approved-supervisor credential, as only courses provided directly by the AAMFT meet those requirements.
This course covers the major models of clinical supervision; developing the supervisor-supervisee relationship; structuring effective clinical supervision; interventions within supervisory modalities; cultural, gender, ethnic, and socioeconomic variables; and ethical and legal issues in clinical supervision. Telephone and videoconferencing supervision is also considered as these represent growing alternatives to in vivo clinical supervision.
Minnesota Administrative Rule 5300.0160, regulating MFT supervision, states that licensed clinicians seeking supervisor status must “provide(s) evidence of training in supervision. Evidence must be shown through graduate level academic course work in supervision equivalent to three semester hours from a regionally accredited institution or 30 hours in continuing education”, in addition to other requirements related to professional practice.
The Minnesota Board of Behavioral Health and Therapy requires that licensed clinicians seeking supervisor status demonstrate “having received a minimum of 45 hours of formal training in providing counseling supervision, which may include graduate coursework, continuing education courses, workshops, or a combination thereof”, in addition to other requirements related to professional practice.
In order to meet the requirements of the MBBHT and the MBMFT (upon Board approval) students who successfully complete this course will receive a certificate of completion of 45 hours of instruction in clinical supervision, rather than graduate credit.
