Introduction (from the Guidelines)

 

The Association of State and Provincial Psychology Boards (ASPPB) Supervision Guidelines were originally published in January 1998 and subsequently revised in 2003 (ASPPB, 1998, 2003). Since that time much has been written about the process, methods and techniques of supervision facilitating the necessity to review and revise the ASPPB Supervision Guidelines once again. Appendix I defines the process used to create these 2020 ASPPB Supervision Guidelines.

 

Supervision plays a critical role in the protection of the public and a central role in the training and practice of psychologists. Supervisors’ responsibilities include monitoring client care, ensuring the quality of practice, overseeing all aspects of client services, and mentoring the supervisee. Protection of and accountability to the public are paramount goals of supervision. A psychologist may supervise 1) a trainee seeking to become a doctoral-level provider of health service psychology (e.g., licensed psychology), that is for education and training for health service providers (HSP), 2) a trainee seeking to become a licensed practitioner for general applied psychology, that is for education and training for general applied providers (GAP), 3) licensed non-doctoral practitioner e.g., master’s level, or 4) a licensed psychologist under a disciplinary order.

 

These Guidelines are broken down into four (4) sections to address each of these supervision areas. These ASPPB Supervision Guidelines are intended to assist jurisdictions in developing thoughtful, relevant, and consistent supervision requirements. In addition, the Guidelines are meant to provide guidance to supervisors and supervisees regarding appropriate expectations and responsibilities within the supervisory relationship. The complexity of the supervisory process, as well as the reality that supervision serves multiple purposes, necessitates that these Guidelines be comprehensive, covering many facets of psychological practice. However, these guidelines cannot address many important issues within the field of psychology (e.g., how to assess the supervisees’ progress; how to know when supervision should cease; co-supervision).
