Introduction, Implementation Guidelines, Foundation Areas, and Performance Domains (TAP Series 21-A, Sections I, II, III, and IV): From Competencies for Substance Abuse Treatment Clinical Supervisors (TAP Series 21-A)

About the Course:

Clinical supervision is much discussed in the professional literature of several disciplines. Theories, process dynamics, and tools abound, but the functional responsibilities and essential skills of the substance use disorder treatment supervisor had not been synthesized into one document that could serve as a standard for the field. A competency-based model, as presented in this document, provides a framework for understanding, learning, and implementing the multiple functions and tasks of clinical supervision.
