Thanks for your interest in Clinical Supervision with Wales Counseling Center, PLLC!
Choosing a supervisor for your clinical license requirement is a decision that can shape your future as a clinician. This is a fun and informative orientation to help Masters level social workers understand the basics of LCSW supervision and clearly define what they want and need from the supervision process. In this 1 hour orientation participants will: Review Texas State Board of Social Workers supervision requirements, Learn about the Wales Counseling supervision program, and Participate in a Q&A regarding questions you have about Supervision.
Reserve your spot below!!!
Did you know?
- An LMSW in almost any social work setting may work towards LCSW licensure when under one or more board-approved Clinical Supervision Plans.
- The board ensures that each individual who receives an LCSW has demonstrated supervised experience in “advanced clinical skills in assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of mental, emotional, and behavioral disorders, conditions and addictions” because an LCSW may practice advanced clinical social work independently. The board must ensure that all LCSWs “are qualified and authorized to use the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), the International Classification of Diseases (ICD), Current Procedural Technology (CPT) codes, and other diagnostic classification systems.” (Title 22, Texas Administrative Code (TAC), §781.202(f)).
- Work in a “non-clinical” setting may be approved and accepted by the board if performed in conjunction with social work experience that meets the board’s minimum requirements.
- If the LMSW’s primary work setting does not meet the board’s minimum requirements, the LMSW may engage in an additional four hours per week of work in a setting which does meet the minimum requirements. In this case, the LMSW would submit a supplemental Clinical Supervision Plan (Form III), attached to the Clinical Supervision Plan for the “non-clinical” work, and the LMSW may receive board approval upon review. Board approval is in writing and mailed to the LMSW.
- Social work experience towards licensure may be performed as a volunteer or for compensation.
Please see the board’s law (Texas Occupations Code, Chapter 505) and rules (Title 22, Texas Administrative Code, Chapter 781), as well as Clinical Supervision Plan (Form III and Instructions) for more detailed information. These are available on the board’s website at: http://www.dshs.state.tx.us/socialwork/.
