Clinical Supervision is used in counselling, psychotherapy, and other mental health disciplines as well as many other professions engaged in working with people.
It consists of the practitioner meeting regularly with another professional, not necessarily more senior, but normally with training in the skills of supervision, to discuss casework and other professional issues in a structured way.
It is sometimes known as counselling or clinical supervision.
The purpose is to assist the practitioner to learn from his or her experience and progress in expertise, as well as to ensure good service to the client.
Clinical supervision is:
“The formal provision, by approved supervisors, of a relationship-based education and training that is work-focused and which manages, supports, develops and evaluates the work of colleague”.
The main methods that clinical supervisors use are corrective feedback on the supervisee’s performance, teaching, and collaborative goal-setting.
It differs from activities such as mentoring and coaching, by incorporating an evaluative component.
Supervision’s objectives are normative (e.g. quality control), restorative (e.g. encourage emotional processing) and formative (e.g. maintaining and facilitating supervisees’s competence, capability and general effectiveness).
