Clinical Supervision
By Dr. Nola Veazie, SUDCC, CADC-II
Clinical supervision is a daunting task and therefore those performing such duties require nurturing. 

Embedded in supervision is the role of the supervisor, as a motivator, who encourages subordinates to carry out the organization’s plans and policies at the operational level. Clinical supervision, however, focuses on the intervention from a senior member who cultivates knowledge and experience in a junior member of the profession. According to Bernard and Goodyear (2004), clinical supervision foments a relationship that is evaluative in nature, extends over a period of time, and enhances the professional functioning of clinicians. Moreover, SAMHSA’s Treatment Improvement Protocol No 52 (2009) posits that clinical supervision provides a bridge between what counselors learn in the classroom and their clinical practice. As a result, clinical supervisors are tasked with translating theory to practice. Regardless of which operational definition we use, clinical supervision is an essential part of the development of new and seasoned counselors.
