Clinical Preparation and Supervision of Professional School Counselors


Journal of School Counseling Volume 8, Number 30, ISSN 1554-2998


The need for a discussion of school counselor preparation and supervision is supported by the guidelines established by both the Council for the Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP), 2009 and the American School Counselor Association (ASCA), 2005. The significance of this article is to provide a reflective narrative based upon actual practices designed to prepare candidates to meet the rigor and relevance required by both accreditation boards and professional organizations. In addition, a clinical preparation and supervision model will be presented. Stages of developmental supervision, clinical supervision experience, and modalities of clinical supervision are discussed. (Contains 1 figure.)
