LCSW Supervision TIPS
Remember, Supervisees need a minimum of 4 hours of face-to-face time with their supervisor per month. Up to 2 hours of this can be in a group setting
It's very important to make sure you find a good fit with your LCSW Supervisor. After all, you'll be working together for a minimum of 2 years or up to 4 years (but it shouldn't take you that long to pass your exam...don't worry!)
If you haven't finished taking out student loans for your MSW program, you might want to consider borrowing the amount you expect to spend over the cost of your supervision for a low interest way to finance your professional development.
