Clinical 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, solutions and safeguards as regards “negligent supervision.” Gary examines elements of the supervisory relationship as well as related boundary and counter-transference issues. He also discusses supervisory guidance regarding danger to clients or third parties.
