Clinical Supervision and Case Consultation

Clinical Supervision for Mental Health Clinicians

Clinical supervision is an essential component of the education and training of mental health clinicians. It is the “signature pedagogy” (Goodyear, 2007, p. 273) across the mental health professions and the “cornerstone of professional development (Bernard & Goodyear, 2009, p. 218). The purpose of clinical supervision is: to discuss the direction of therapy and the therapeutic relationship; to promote the professional development of the supervisee; to enhance the supervisee’s safe and effective use of self in the therapeutic relationship; and to safeguard client well-being.
