What to Expect from Clinical Supervision in Texas?
Are you in need of clinical supervision in Forth Worth? When an LMSW is under supervision, they meet with their supervisor for 4 hours per month. Most complete group supervision for 2 hours twice a month. I offer both in-person and online sessions which means you can be anywhere in Texas if online.
Does My Job Qualify for Supervision?
The board has determined that if you assess, diagnose and treat mental health or substance abuse issues using DSM-V criteria for at least four hours per week, you are eligible for LCSW supervision. If you’re using a diagnostic skill set and/or screening tools when working with clients or patients, you are fulfilling this requirement. If you have a personal client or patient interaction and utilize clinical skills, you probably meet LCSW supervision criteria.
What is Group Supervision Like?
Once you decide to pursue LCSW supervision, we will complete a social work supervision agreement and the clinical supervision plan. You will also provide a job description and a letter from your employer showing that you have begun LCSW supervision with me. As of February 9, 2021, we no longer submit paperwork to the board when you begin supervision.
Cost for Group and Individual Supervision
Group sessions are $35 per hour which is $140 per month.
Individual sessions are $70 per hour. ( I require that you complete at least 8 hours of individual supervision by the end of supervision) Most complete 1 hour of individual supervision every 3 months).
How To Apply to Take the LCSW Exam
Once BHEC receives everything, they will email instructions telling you to go to a local IdentoGo location to be fingerprinted. This costs $40, and IdentiGo will send your fingerprint results directly to BHEC. Once they’re received, BHEC will upgrade your LMSW to LCSW.
