- Clinical Supervision
- The College of Registered Psychotherapists defines this as 'A contractual relationship in which a clinical supervisor engages with a supervisee to promote the professional growth of the supervisee; enhance the supervisee's safe and effective use of self in the therapeutic relationship, discuss the direction of therapy; and safeguard the well-being of the client.
Clinical supervision is distinct from general (or managerial) supervision by a supervisor or manager in the workplace, and distinct from the general supervision of students as provided for by the Regulated Health Professions Act, 1991.'
