COUN7520: Supervision Practices in Play Therapy

Class Program
Credits 1
Providing quality supervision for play therapists is both a responsibility and a challenge for Counselor Education programs and professionals in the field. The purpose of this course is to present a format of supervision outlining both a model and helpful guidelines to facilitate the supervisory relationship between supervisor and supervisee doing play therapy. Supervisors have a number of roles and responsibilities, including assuring the welfare of the client, making sure that ethical, legal, and professional standards are being upheld, overseeing the clinical and professional development of the supervisee, and evaluating the supervisee. For this reason, the roles and responsibilities, as well as effective models of play therapy supervision will be discussed in this course.
