Clinical Supervision Training

KW Counselling Services offers training to clinical supervisors.

 

The College of Registered Psychotherapist of Ontario (CRPO) has clearly outlined the requirements for being a clinical supervisor in Ontario. Clinical supervisors are now required to have 30 hours of directed learning in supervision.  From the CRPO website:

“As of, April 1, 2018. “The Registration Committee has approved the following criteria for demonstrating competence in providing clinical supervision:

The supervisor must be a member in good standing of a regulatory college whose members may practise psychotherapy. The supervisor must have five years’ extensive clinical experience. The supervisor must meet CRPO’s “independent practice” requirement (completion of 1000 direct client contact hours and 150 hours of clinical supervision). The supervisor must have completed 30 hours of directed learning in providing clinical supervision. Directed learning can include course work, supervised practice as a clinical supervisor, individual/peer/group learning, and independent study that includes structured readings. The supervisor must provide a signed declaration that they understand CRPO’s definitions of clinical supervision, clinical supervisor, and the scope of practice of psychotherapy.”

KW Counselling Services can provide training in all four areas required by CRPO:

  • Course work
  • Supervised practice as a clinical supervisor
  • Individual/peer/group learning
  • Independent study that includes structured readings
