Welcome! The faculty and students of the SCSU Counseling and School Psychology Department wish to thank you for your generous contribution of valuable time in serving as an on-site supervisor for one of our practicum or internship students. Your efforts help promote excellence in the field of Counseling, and the supervisory role you play will elevate the quality of education and directly impact the professional development of the fieldwork student you work with at your site.
As you may know, the counseling programs at SCSU are accredited by the Counsel for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP). CACREP standards state that all on-site supervisors must receive orientation, assistance, and consultation regarding clinical supervision of interns and our program. A faculty member from the university designated as the Field Site Supervisor will be in touch with site supervisors periodically throughout the placement to provide whatever assistance you may need and to identify how the fieldwork student is doing at your site. In addition, this site has been developed to provide some basic information about clinical supervision, and resources related to providing supervision. We hope you will find it both convenient and informative.
The following information includes an overall orientation and training for all on-site supervisors. All of the information on this web site is relevant for both school and clinical mental health agency supervisors.
