FAQ:  Approved Supervisors

How Does One Become an Approved Supervisor After the Grandfathering Period?

Approved supervisors must have documented two years of clinical experience as a licensed professional clinical counselor, marriage and family therapist, clinical psychologist, clinical social worker, or physician and surgeon certified in psychiatry in California. Supervisors must  have received 6 hours of professional training in supervision within 60 days of supervising the first intern, and have a current and valid license that is not under suspension or probation. Supervisors cannot have provided therapeutic services to the clinical counselor trainee or intern, have a personal relationship that undermines the effectiveness of the supervision, or be a family member by blood or marriage. See the BBS Regulations 1821 REQUIREMENTS FOR SUPERVISORS http://www.bbs.ca.gov/pdf/publications/lawsregs.pdf
