The purpose of the Association for Counselor Education and Supervision (ACES) in accordance with the guidelines of the American Counseling Association (ACA) is to help guide professional behavior befitting of a counselor educator and supervisor. Supervision in recent years has achieved important professional status, and has even been established as a distinct professional specialty area due to unique roles in supervision including clinical, administrative, and programmatic. Evidence of this new professional status comes about in a separate supervisor credential for counseling supervisor’s known as the Approved Clinical Supervisor (ACS), and the 2012 State of Maryland DHMH Board of Professional Counselors and Therapist “Approved Supervisor in Clinical Professional Counseling” status for supervisors.
What is the Definition of Supervision?
Clinical supervision is best described as a unique process between a competent supervisor, and a supervisee, whereby the supervisor acts as a gatekeeper for the profession by improving the professional skills of the supervisee through observation, assessment and evaluation, while safe guarding the welfare of clients through monitoring the services the supervisees provide to the client. The goal is for supervisees to become ethical, competent, and independent professionals.
Supervision and Cultural Diversity Awareness
The primary goal of supervision is to assist the supervisee with acquiring the necessary skills and expertise to provide the best treatment and care for their clients. Given the changing demographics of the United States, supervisors are to be adequately trained in diverse issues, as they are ultimately responsible for fostering cultural competence in their supervisees, in order to ensure appropriate treatment for their clients of color.
Personal Philosophy of Supervision
Ethics & Supervision
Section F of the 2014 ACA Code of Ethics is focused specifically on issues regarding Supervision, Training, and Teaching. Please refer to p. 12-15 in your 2014 ACA Code of Ethics.
Model of Supervision
The Developmental Model will be the model used in supervision. The key and goal in this model is for the supervisor to accurately identify the supervisee’s current stage and provide support and constructive feedback that is useful to foster growth and positive change in that developmental stage, while at the same time championing the supervisee’s progress in reaching the next stage of development; the goal is for the supervisee to develop from beginner to master, and become an independent counselor.
Supervision is a learning process that results in self-awareness, self-understanding, critical thinking skills, and mutual growth for the supervisee as well as the supervisor.
