  3. Fulfill requirements in preparation for Resident in Counseling’s pursuit of licensure

Supervision approach will be a combination of Integrated Developmental Model and Person –center supervision to provide an environment of progression for the Resident in Counseling to fairly evaluate their work performance, counseling skills and personal issues they bring into their practice.

Supervision will involve client case review and collaborative problem-solving.  Supervision will focus on accountability to ethics and best practice principles.  This progression may include reflection on professional boundaries with clients, personal awareness, the importance of forming and preserving trust of clients, and exploration with clients towards therapeutic goals. Supervision aims at creating a warm, empathetic environment in which the RIC can review counseling skills and become exposed to new concepts for clinical maturity. Supervision will also address matters, such as countertransference, that affect therapy and personal self.
