The COVID-19 pandemic and the growth of remote services have brought considerable transformation to many services and programs. Supervision carries with it legal risks as well as a multitude of ethical and boundary issues, whether one is supervising trainees or seasoned professionals. At the same time, the standard of care in supervision is typically far less clear to both supervisor & supervisee. This program examines the risks, and also solutions and safeguards as regards “negligent supervision.” Key elements of the supervisory relationship will be examined as will related boundary issues, counter-transference, etc. There is also be an examination of a number of special issues such as cultural & diversity issues, the challenges of the new technologies, questions of distance supervision, supervision of students or practitioners under discipline, and supervision as a remedy for practice deficiencies. Case examples will be utilized and there will be opportunities for questions and discussions related to cases or situations that participants have experienced
