the supervisee’s scope of practice and level of competence
duties and responsibilities of the supervisor and supervisee including the format for taping and opportunities for live observation
all of the above
What is not a correct statement about the nature of an IDP?
It is a detailed plan for supervision that includes the goals that you and the supervisee wish to address over a specified period of time.
It identifies the timelines for change, the observation methods that will be employed, and the expectations for the supervisee and the supervisor.

Still in Evaluating Performance: Which statement below is not accurate, concerning performance evaluation of a supervisee?
A formative evaluation is an ongoing status report of the supervisee's skill development.
Summative evaluation is a formal rating of the supervisee's overall job performance, fitness for the job, and job rating - usually done annually..
Experience, credentials, and academic performance are the primary indicators of clinical competence.
Good feedback is provided frequently, clearly, and consistently and is SMART (specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and timely) (Powell & Brodsky, 2004).
Direct Observation of the supervisee's work is the foundation for Performance Evaluation, and it facilitates the most meaningful form of input from the supervisor.
True False
Failure to ADDRESS BURNOUT, GENERAL FATIGUE, and COMPASSION FATIGUE with supervisees is an ethical and legal issue, i.e., it is a failure of your fiduciary responsibility for the welfare of the supervisee's clients and can result in adverse legal action against you.
True False
The clinical supervisor should advise the supervisee that stress and compassion fatigue in the workplace may be an indication of pathology or unsuitability for work in this field.
True False
The primary goal of a clinical supervisor is to protect the welfare of the client, which can mean enforcing the GATEKEEPING function of supervision. Gatekeeping refers to
referring a client elsewhere for better treatment
counseling the supervisee out of the field.
In Methods and Techniques of Observation in Supervision: Which is true about the methods and techniques used to observe the work of the supervisee?
Methods include case consultation, written activities such as verbatims and process recordings, audio and videotaping, and live observation.
Techniques include modeling, skill demonstrations, and role playing.
both of the above
neither of the above
Regarding the use of Videotaped Supervision (VTS), which is not true?
Videotape Tape Supervision (VTS) has been a primary method of direct observation in both the Marriage and Family Therapy and Social Work fields for many years.
VTS is a complex, powerful and dynamic tool.
VTS can be challenging, threatening, anxiety-provoking, and humbling, and therefore should not be used with supervisees who are at Stage/Level 1 of Development.
Clients must sign a consent form to be videotaped, and the consent can be withdrawn.
Which is not an example of DIRECT OBSERVATION by the supervisor?
audio and videotaping
one way mirrors
reading progress notes and listening to verbal reports
live observation - supervisor sitting in the room
Regarding DIRECT OBSERVATION by the supervisor, which statement is correct?
Clients need to be notified of an upcoming observation by a supervisor before the observation occurs.
The supervisee should know at the outset of employment that observation and/or taping will be required in the supervision process.
both of the above
neither of the above because these conditions are too limiting.
With INDIRECT methods of observation, a supervisee's reports to his supervisor will not be affected by biases and distortions in recall, if s/he is an honest person.
True False
Risk Management practices necessitate that ALL AUDIO TAPES and VIDEO RECORDINGS of the supervisee's sessions with clients be erased following supervisory feedback, and this practice must be stated in program policy.
True False
Videotaping may not be advisable when treating patients with some diagnoses, such as paranoia or some schizophrenic illnesses. In such cases, either live observation or less intrusive measures, such as audio taping, may be preferred.
True False
In LIVE OBSERVATION, in which the supervisor sits in the session with the counselor and the client, what is the role of the supervisor?
Supervisors should stay primarily in an observer role, to avoid usurping the leadership or undercutting the credibility and authority of the supervisee.

If a session become countertherapeutic, the supervisor can intervene for the well-being of the client.
all of the above
Only the second and third options above
During the LIVE OBSERVATION session: The supervisor should intervene only to protect the welfare of the client or if a moment critical to client welfare arises.
True False
Live observation should be used only with supervisees who are at Level/Stage 2 of Development, because it can be anxiety-provoking for all involved, can be intrusive, and can alter the dynamics of the counseling session.
True False
Which statement below applies to review of the supervisee's PROGRESS NOTES, CHARTS, and DOCUMENTATION, as a method of clinical supervision?
It is an important task to ensure compliance with accreditation standards for documentation.
It is time consuming.

DOCUMENTATION of CLINICAL SUPERVISION is a crucial risk-management tool, and is one of the most important administrative tasks of a supervisor.
True False

It is necessary, at times, to explore supervisees’ limitations as they deliver services to their clients.
Supervision must be restricted to identifying how the supervisee’s personal issues and problems affect their work.
When personal issues emerge, the key question you should ask the supervisee is how does this affect the delivery of quality client care?

What feelings does this client bring out in you, and what is your behavior toward the client in response to these feelings?
What is it about the substance abuse behavior of this client that brings out a response in you?
What is going on between you and the client that might be contributing to these feelings, and how does this affect your counseling?
In what ways can you address these issues in your counseling?
What is going on in your marriage that is causing you to be overly-sensitive and stressed?
Supervisor countertransference with supervisees can include cultural countertransference, such as catering to or withdrawing from individuals of a specific cultural background in a way that hinders the professional development of the supervisee.
True False
The benefits of group supervision are that it is cost-effective, members can test their perceptions through peer validation, learning is enhanced by the diversity of the group, it creates a working alliance and improves teamwork, and it provides a microcosm of group process for participants.
