Supervision: Foundations of Supervision (Feb 24-25)


This course fulfills the training requirement mandated by the Virginia Board of Social Work to provide clinical supervision for LCSW candidates. The Virginia Board of Counseling updated their regulations for LPC and LMFT licensure, however, now stating: 

  • For LPC and LMFT licensure, your supervisor must hold an active, unrestricted license as a LPC or LMFT only, in the jurisdiction where the supervision is being provided. At least 100 of the supervision hours must be supervised by a LPC. **Previously approved supervisors who are substance abuse treatment practitioners, school psychologists, clinical psychologists, clinical social workers, or psychiatrists can provide supervision until August 24, 2017.
