Supervision Hours Question and Answer

Supervision is an extremely important aspect to gaining licensure. After graduating supervision tends to be one of the first topics on any new graduates mind and with that a lot of unanswered questions may come up. After last month’s article regarding how to turn in supervision hours, a lot of Registered Interns had follow up questions and below are the follow up questions and answers: What does Florida require for supervision hours? 100 hours of supervision in no less than 2 years. If an intern has a caseload of more than 15 clients a week, does the intern require an additional hour of supervision? Yes, for every 15 client hours an intern needs one hour of supervision so, if an intern has more than 15 clients in one week, they are required an additional hour of supervision for that week. If an intern has 2 supervision hours in one week, do both hours of supervision count towards licensure? Yes, any amount of supervision will be counted towards the 100 hours of supervision.  What if an intern ends up with all 100 hours of supervision in less than 2 years? The intern will still be required to continue supervision until the 2 year minimum, 1500 client hour AND 100 hours of supervision have been met. Regardless is one or the other is met prior to the 2 year minimum.  Can an intern have more than one supervisor? Yes, many interns will have more than one supervisor for situations of canceled supervision hours or to obtain group supervision from one supervisor and individual from another. There are many benefits to having...

The NCMHCE Examination  © Jessica Richards, Registered Mental Health Counselor Intern October 30, 2014  Graduate school is over and you have a lot on your mind!

Well, that is usually an individual decision because there are a lot of directions you can take and a lot of us will end up taking completely different routes.

To Facebook or Not to Facebook?

To Facebook or Not to Facebook? That is the question isn’t it? I mean, most of us have had a Facebook account for years now and it almost seems as though you can’t live with it but, yet you can’t live without it. As new therapist, I have watched several graduates decide to try and live without it, I my self being one of them. As school was over I, along with every other student at the end of the semester or school year, decided to toss all of my books…. Including the book of faces! After all, I can’t be on social media as a mental health counselor! Right? … Wrong! Let’s face it, literally, Facebook and social media are not going anywhere but, up. If we seclude ourselves from it, as professionals, where does that leave us? … Going down?… In a way, to answer that question easy, yes. As every other therapist and counselor embrace the social media realm and evolve with it, if we choose to run from it, we will find ourselves struggling in the long run. I am not talking about having a personal Facebook page or personal social media pages; I am talking about developing yourself as a professional socially. – Keeping personal and professional separate – Just a helpful tip: do not join or follow professional organizations or groups with your personal accounts because the ability for those organizations to see your professional account is 10 fold. – Yes, absolutely, I did toss that personal book of faces out the window but, quickly found myself running right back to create a...
