What is a supervision contract (or agreement)?

A document that outlines the relationship and work between the supervisor and supervisee.
(defines the roles and responsibilities of faculty supervisor, site supervisor, and student)

6

True/False: letting a client know you are a supervisee is not part of the informed consent process.

What is the self-report method of supervision?

Supervisee reports to supervisor what happened in the counseling sessions, the client issues they see, and their own issues and topics of concerns.
(most common)

8

It's subjective and you might not notice your own blind spots. (This is the least effective method.)

What is the most effective method of supervision?

Digital or Audio Recordings.
- Gives supervisors direct access to supervisee's work
