Description

Description:
Campbell (2006) emphatically stated that "clinical supervision is increasingly at the forefront of malpractice prevention. Agencies, hospitals, schools, and private practice settings are concerned about liability, and thus many are moving to mandatory clinical supervision for all employees regardless of level of education or years of experience in order to assure the highest standard of care possible for clients" (p. 1). In addition to being well versed in ethical matters (see Chapter 7), supervisors must have a comprehensive understanding of the laws that affect their practice as supervisors and the practice of their supervisees. A good understanding of risk management strategies pertaining to all aspects of supervision is essential.



Objectives:

  1. Identify the most critical legal issues in supervision
  2. Define the legal responsibilities a supervisor must assume in supervision
  3. Compare and contrast ethical and legal issues in supervision
