On behalf of the University of West Alabama’s Counseling Program, we would like to thank you for your interest in supervising one of our counseling students.

We offer two education tracks: School Counseling and Clinical Mental Health Counseling. Both majors take one practicum experience of 100 hours and one internship of 600 hours.

As a way to better prepare our site supervisors, we are pleased to offer this online training to you. Successful completion of this supervision module includes reading a brief PowerPoint on supervision; reviewing the Practicum and Internship manual that outline the requirements for these training experiences; reviewing applicable ethical codes; and completing an assessment. To successfully meet this requirement, you must do the following:

1. View the Training PowerPoint

2. Review Practicum and Internship Manual

3. Review the applicable ethical code(s) – Clinical Mental Health Counselors will use American Counseling Association Code of Ethics and School Counselors will use American School Counseling Association Code of Ethics

The contributions that you make in supervising our students on their journey to becoming counselors are highly valued by the Faculty and Students of The University of West Alabama.

Each semester you supervise an UWA student, orientation to the particular course is provided to site supervisors by the assigned faculty for that particular course, ensuring that the supervisor receives the most up-to-date information beyond this initial supervision training and review of requirements.

If you need assistance or consultation beyond the instructor for a particular course, you may contact the Counseling Program Chairperson, Dr. Nisha Warbington at
