You will need to submit a professional disclosure statement intended for your supervisees. A statement you currently distribute to supervisees can be submitted provided it addresses the 10 required areas listed below. If you are not currently employed in a supervisory capacity, write the disclosure statement as if you were. If the supervisory responsibilities are an aspect of your employment (e.g., counselor educator), write the statement from that perspective. An effective disclosure statement demonstrates an understanding of the multiple responsibilities of a clinical supervisor. Your statement must include:
Clinical supervision training must be specific to providing supervision or becoming a supervisor.
You must document completion of one of the following:
a. A three-semester-hour graduate course in clinical supervision from a CACREP-accredited program (by transcript)
b. A 45-clock-hour NBCC-approved workshop training in clinical supervision (by certificate copy)
c. A total of 45 clock hours of clinical supervision training specific to providing supervision or becoming a supervisor, which must include each of the following content areas (Submit the transcript/certificate and the course syllabus/outline.):
- Roles and functions of clinical supervisors
- Models of clinical supervision
- Mental health–related professional development
- Methods and techniques in clinical supervision
- Supervisory relationship issues
- Cultural issues in clinical supervision
- Group supervision
- Legal and ethical issues in clinical supervision
- Evaluation of supervisee competence and the supervision process
You must submit an endorsement form documenting a minimum of 100 hours of your own supervised clinical supervision of individuals providing mental health services. Your supervision experience may include individual and/or group supervision, with a maximum of 10 members in a supervision group. You may use supervision of graduate students in training to fulfill this requirement. The endorser of your supervision must be a current NCC or licensed or certified mental health provider, and must have training in clinical supervision.
You must document a minimum of five years of post-degree experience in mental health services that includes at least 4,000 hours of direct service with clients. The master's or higher degree submitted must be in a mental health field.
You may substitute a conferred doctorate and/or completed internship for up to three years and 900 hours of the total required.
Completed doctoral internship: Each school year of internship counts for one year and 300 hours of experience, or the number of hours stated in the internship course requirements.
Conferred doctorate: Each school year of enrollment in a doctoral program counts for one year and 300 hours of experience.
