Supervised Practical Training
Realizing that supervision may take place in a variety of settings and have many faces, the IC&RC AODA, Inc. determined not to place limiting criteria on areas of supervision or qualifications of a supervisor. Rather, it was determined that supervision should be as broadly defined as in the Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT)/Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administrationís (SAMHSA) Technical Assistance Publication (TAP) #21. TAP 21 defines supervision/clinical supervision as the ďadministrative, clinical, and evaluative process of monitoring, assessing and enhancing counselor performance.Ē *(A minimum of 10 hours supervision in each domain).
