Key Legal and Ethical Issues for Supervisors

With Mike Griffin, JD, LCSW

This six-hour course may be used to fulfill the standard Law and Ethics requirement and additionally may be used to fulfill a portion of the requirements for becoming a CAMFT Certified Supervisor, or, it can stand on its own as a resource for anyone who provides clinical supervision to pre-licensed therapists. The course focuses on key legal and ethical issues in supervision, including: the legal and ethical duties of a supervisor; the supervisor - supervisee relationship; the use of agreements with supervisees; supervision in agency settings; supervision in private-practice; employing interns; advertising and disclosure requirements; handling fees and insurance; documentation and record-keeping; and, termination/end of internship issues. Vignettes will be utilized during the workshop for group discussion of specific issues.  The course primarily focuses upon the supervision of MFT Interns and Trainees but may point out relevant distinctions applicable to the supervision of Associate Clinical Social Workers and/or Clinical Counseling Interns. 

In addition to his experience as a therapist, Mike Griffin has also worked as a clinical case manager, clinical supervisor, program director and as an oral examiner for LCSW candidates. Mr. Griffin served as a child/adolescent outpatient clinic director in the department of Psychiatry at Children’s Hospital and Health Center of San Diego and is the former Director of Clinical Operations for Western Youth Services in Orange County California.
