*** As you may be aware, the Board of Counseling has approved recently enacted changes to the regulations governing professional counselors, including the requirements for those who provide clinical supervision towards licensure for Master’s level clinicians. These changes require that supervisors receive training in supervision “consisting of a three-credit-hour course in supervision or a 4.0-quarter-hour course in supervision, or at least 20 hours of continuing education in supervision by an approved provider…” If you have provided supervision prior to September 3rd, when these changes went into effect, you have until September 3rd, 2010 to meet those requirements to continue to provide clinical supervision.
