Clinical Supervision versus Case Consultation
The Supervisor role is one that is more geared toward the psychologist directing the activities of the supervisee. In this case, there are greater legal risks. The licensed clinician who is the clinical supervisor is responsible for and must monitor the actions of those they supervise. In this case, the supervisor has to accept personal responsibility for those people who are under them. In that case, the actions taken by the supervisee directly reflect the supervisor.
A consultant is a person who would have other therapists who they were assisting but those therapists would ultimately be responsible for their choices after the guidance they receive. In Clinical Supervision versus Case Consultation, with consultation, the consultant is not legally liable for the actions of the consultee because the consultee would already be a licensed practitioner. This type of activity would normally occur in professional settings. The Supervisor would have unlicensed persons under supervision. The supervisee understands the supervisor is responsible for the work that they produce. This type of activity would happen in graduate settings, learning environments, and in practicums or residencies.
Consultation is advice that can be rejected by the consultee. Supervision is about the direction and education of a supervisee that is on a more continuous basis. Consultation happens in a specific incident that needs attention. The ongoing relationship of the supervisor/supervisee is about feedback, evaluation, and performance reviews. The supervisor is legally responsible and any problems must be corrected regularly.(www.psychologytoday.com)
