Ethical Responsibilities & Liabilities in Supervision – What Every Supervisor Need To Know (Australian & New Zealand Context)
Supervision has a crucial role in protecting clients, practitioners, and the profession. Supervision directly impacts practice fundamentals (such as informed consent and risk mitigation), therapeutic interactions (such as responding to cultural challenges, multiple relationships, defences, and transference/countertransference), safety (client and therapist vulnerabilities), and compliance confidence (confidentiality, privacy, record management, and disclosure).
Effective supervision is ethical supervision. The supervision-supervisee relationship is different from the therapist-client relationship. Supervisors need to understand their ethical responsibilities and know the bounds of their legal liability. Is a supervisor liable for their supervisee’s negligence? How close and intense should supervision be? What are the reasonable responsibilities and actions expected of a supervisor?
