Clinical Supervision as defined for the State of Idaho is the planning, directing, monitoring and evaluating the work of counselors in Addiction Treatment.
Clinical Supervision includes assuring the quality of treatment, creating a positive work environment and developing staff clinical skills.
Each provider of services through contracts with Idaho Department of Health and Welfare, Substance Abuse Program will use the NFATTC model of clinical supervision. The monitoring of clinical supervision is the responsibility under contract with the MSC.
Clinical Supervision frequency will be based on the counselor’s need but will have a minimum of 1 hour per month per counselor. Acceptable activities for clinical supervision include individual tutoring/mentoring, group tutoring/mentoring, individual observation, group observation, learning plan development and review. The hour of supervision per month may be broken into shorter time frames during each month, however the hour may not be comprised solely of one type of activity, rather must be a combination of observation and mentoring/tutoring/learning plan review.
