Clinical Supervision creates a forum for collaboration, developing clinical skills and exploring the self of the therapist. Future clinicians are required to have supervised client contact prior to obtaining a state license. I have experience working with students and clinicians toward obtaining their licenses and improving their clinical skills.
Clinical supervision requires specialized training, which consists of a post-graduate course and supervised clinical internship under a trained and experienced supervisor. A supervisor needs to have knowledge of a wide range of therapeutic models in order to look into the therapist's biases, background and perspectives.
We provide supervision on the preferred models of the therapists who consult with us. We're currently looking for post-graduate BBS registered interns looking to earn their pre-licensing clinical hours. Interns cannot bill clients. This is NOT a paid internship. However, we do provide a stipend to assist with expenses.
Responsibilities1. Interns provide weekly individual, group and family theraputic sessions/ preventative counseling and are involved in crisis management as it relates to the young people residing in residential care.
2. They may work long, irregular hours including nights and weekends.
