Counselors working under supervision may feel a layer of protection from legal and ethical issues. However, they are responsible for knowledge and professional practice, as well as awareness of their ethical responsibilities as supervisees. In this webinar, Dr. Levitt discusses the ethical and legal considerations for counselors working under supervision. Participants will be introduced to concepts such as vicarious liability, ethical and legal concepts regarding supervision, and ethical and legal considerations for best practice. The goal of the webinar is to introduce counselors to information they should know as supervisees, and how to work in the best interests of their clients through supervision.
1. Identify ethical and legal concepts regarding supervision.
2. Learn best practices for supervisee protection and ethical practice.
3. Develop ethical supervision goals and processes to promote supervisee and client welfare.
