Download a copy

A major focus of workforce development is to improve the competencies of those in the field.  This applies not only to counselors, but also to clinical supervisors.  Clinical supervisors must have the supervisory skills needed for mentoring, teaching and assessing the addictions counselor while keeping pace with the demands, challenges and scientific advances of the addictions treatment field. 

A clinical supervisor’s primary goal is to foster a counselor’s professional growth.  It is also important for clinical supervisors to understand the developmental process of supervisees and create an environment which promotes learning, practice, and personal development.
