Supervisors will gain greater differentiation in supervisee needs based on stage of career and licensure needs. Ethics will be incorporated throughout the presentation. Better trained supervisors lead to better trained clinicians and this directly impacts couples, individuals and families. This presentation aims to help grow the profession to increase access to quality services.

  2. Participants will be able to provide examples of balancing ethical codes, best practices and common sense
  3. Participants will identify ethical issues along the lifespan of supervision (intern vs seeking licensure vs licensed staff)
