The faculty and students of Counseling Programs at the University of West Alabama wish to thank you for your generous contribution of valuable time in serving as an on-site supervisor to one of our students. As they embark on this journey towards becoming professional counselors, this step represents perhaps one of the most important parts of their training. Your efforts will help promote excellence in the field of Counseling, and the supervisory role you play will greatly elevate the quality of education and professional development of the students at your site.

The University of West Alabama follows the standards set by the Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP). CACREP standards state that all on-site supervisors must receive orientation, assistance, and consultation regarding clinical supervision of interns and our program. In order to meet this requirement, we have prepared this information for you as you make ready for your role as supervisor. The information includes an overall orientation to the expectations we place on our interns, our On-Site Supervisors and other information relevant for both school and community agency supervisors. We hope you will find it helpful and informative.

In order to properly document that our On-Site Supervisors have received this preparation, we ask that you view the information and note on your Site Supervisor Registry and Agreement form in Tevera the date you completed your review.
