Supervisor Expectations

Scheduling. Supervisors need to be available to take over any supervisee session immediately in the event that the supervisee needs immediate support. 

Supervisors are expected to attend the supervisor’s meeting every week.

Supervision. Supervisors are expected to hold one hour of individual supervision every week with their supervisee. If at all possible, please try to reschedule the supervision hour in the event of a rare conflict. 

Crisis supervision. Trainees may need immediate support and may not be able to reach their immediate supervisor (this is rare). In the event that this occurs, other supervisors have a responsibility to ensure that the trainee gets the immediate support they need. If you are available to help, you must help a trainee in need of immediate supervision. If you support a trainee through a crisis session, you can be compensated for that session over the primary supervisor. Speak to Adam ASAP to ensure this occurs appropriately.

Clinical Documentation. Supervisors should read and review supervisee notes within one week. Provide feedback in the notes section at the bottom of the page. 

Supervisors should be helping supervisees to improve their clinical documentation skills in terms of timeliness and professionalism of their notes.

Video. Supervisors are expected to regularly review video for their supervisees. Preferably, supervisors should watch videos once a week. 

When both parties are available, videos should be uploaded to the “Vid Share” by the supervisee then immediately downloaded by the supervisor. 

As soon as the video is successfully exchanged, both parties need to ensure that the video was deleted from the vid share folder. Also double check that the video was deleted from their “trash”. The supervisee can immediately delete the video from their harddrive (and their recycle bin). After watching the video and providing feedback the supervisor should delete the video from their harddrives (and recycle bin). 

Evaluations. Supervisors should complete all evaluations in advance of their due date to allow for ample time to review these evaluations with the supervision team and then their supervisee. 

In the event that the supervisee is not performing at expected level, the supervisor should bring these concerns to the supervision team as early as possible and should utilize the supervision team to effectively manage the situation and effectively respond to these growth needs.
