The Director of CCC, Doc Warren (Dr. Warren Corson III), is an Approved Clinical Supervisor who has worked in the human services in many capacities since 1990. He offers clinical supervision to clinical professionals, interns and students enrolled in programs of study in the human services (counseling, psychology, human services, drug rehabilitation, etc.).
The purpose of counseling supervision is to safeguard the client by promoting the development and well-being of the counselor, monitoring the counselor's work, and training the counselor.
Goals of Supervision:
Our goal is to provide the supervisee with the best learning environment possible in order to ensure the proper melding of theory and practice. In order to ensure this goal is met, the supervisor will:
Guide supervisees in increasing their professional skills, knowledge base and experience.
Provide "face-to-face" and off-site supervision, as contracted.
Interface with employment-based supervisors, as appropriate.
Assist supervisee with properly interpreting state and national credentialing requirements.
Roles & Responsibilities of the Supervisor
Participate in initial discussions with supervisee to establish clear expectations for all involved parties.
Encourage supervisee’s reflections and self-evaluation.
Consult and communicate with employment-based supervisor, as appropriate.
Monitor supervisee’s progress and the appropriateness of their clinical practices.
Roles & Responsibilities of the Supervisee:
The supervisee will:
Fully participate in supervision and assume greater levels of responsibility over time.
Analyze and evaluate practices observed and own efforts and effectiveness.
Seek out and use feedback from Supervisor and employment-based supervisor, as applicable.
Limitations of Supervision:
Supervision is designed to help prepare the supervisee for competent, ethical counseling practices. It is not designed to provide therapeutic services and should not be viewed as a therapeutic resource. Though we pride ourselves on being available to the supervisee to provide insight and guidance, we are not available on an emergency or on call basis. Learners are encouraged to engage in therapy of their own, as appropriate.
Confidentiality is an important component of the Counseling profession. Supervisees are required to adhere to confidentiality requirements at all times. When taking part in supervision groups, in order to respect the privacy of clients, it is recommended that the use of actual client names be avoided. Supervisees are encouraged to instead refer to clients in generic terms such as, "I have a client that is experiencing…" instead of, "my client Mr. Jones…"
