About the Course:
Clinical supervision is much discussed in the professional literature of several disciplines. Theories, process dynamics, and tools abound, but the functional responsibilities and essential skills of the substance use disorder treatment supervisor had not been synthesized into one document that could serve as a standard for the field. A competency-based model, as presented in this document, provides a framework for understanding, learning, and implementing the multiple functions and tasks of clinical supervision.
Course materials are from Sections I, II, III, and IV, found on pages 1 to 36 of pdf document (pages 1-40 if using Adobe toolbar page finder.) Course materials can be accessed either 1) online or by ordering the publication free of charge from: http://ncadistore.samhsa.gov/catalog/productDetails.aspx?ProductID=17824
This course is based on the reading-based online, Introduction, Implementation Guidelines, Foundation Areas, and Performance Domains (TAP Series 21-A, Sections I, II, III, and IV): From Competencies for Substance Abuse Treatment Clinical Supervisors (TAP Series 21-A) created by U.S. Department of Health and Human Services in 2007.
