Research Consent Form
Read prior to taking the survey
The first stage of this research project entailed the determination of the principal domains that comprise aspirational qualifications, competencies, and practices in clinical supervision of counselling and psychotherapy. This process of discernment was undertaken via a review of the extant professional literature and interviews conducted with Canadian and American counselling professionals who were identified as having attained particular expertise in clinical supervision. Seven domains appear to encompass qualified, competent, and best practice conduct in clinical supervision: professional preparedness; structuring; relational; assessment, feedback, evaluation, and reporting; ethical, legal, and regulatory; diversity and social justice; and professionalism.
We now seek the input of the CCPA membership regarding the degree to which specific qualifications, competencies, and practices are important to the clinical supervision relationship and process.
