As we wrap up 2020 and look forward to 2021 we are excited to receive your feedback via the CADTP Counselor Annual Survey. Last year's survey was very meaningful to us and helped to provide our counselors with enhanced services.
The feature article this month focuses on the Clinical Supervision of counselors. Clinical supervision is vital in substance abuse treatment to improve client care, develop the professionalism of clinical personnel, and impart and maintain ethical standards in the field. 

We hope you find the resources for clinical supervision valuable. Be sure to check out the CADTP clinical supervisor certification requirements to see if the certification is a fit for your career path!

Feature Article
Clinical Supervision for the SUD Counselor
Treatment Improvement Protocol (TIP) 52
Clinical supervision is a profession with its own theories, practices, and standards. There are several definitions of supervision. According to Technical Assistance Publication (TAP) 21-A, Competencies for Substance Abuse Treatment Clinical Supervisors, clinical supervision is a social influence process that occurs over time, in which the supervisor participates with supervisors to ensure quality of clinical care. Effective supervisors observe, mentor, coach, evaluate, inspire, and create an atmosphere that promotes self-motivation, learning, and professional development. They build teams, create cohesion, resolve conflict, and shape agency culture while attending to ethical and diversity issues in all aspects of the process.
