Clinical supervision

Wikis > Clinical supervision

Clinical supervision is the construction of individualized learning plans for practitioners (supervisees) working with clients. For the supervisor, it involves training and evaluating the supervisee and the quality of services provided to individual clients. Clinical supervision was formally introduced into mainstream nursing almost twenty years ago, but it is now used also in counselling, psychotherapy, and other mental health disciplines as well as many other professions engaged in working with people.
