What can you apply today right after the episode.
Create a spreadsheet
If you have a supervisee with multiple supervisors create a shared spreadsheet between the supervisors and the supervisee.
The spreadsheet should give instruction on how you are deciding who is being supervised by which supervisor. And clearly delineate which supervisor is primary or secondary for that client.
Create a contract
Create a clear contract between all three parties. Include things like:
- How we choose which clients are who's
- Who notifies clients in case of emergency
- Hours reporting or evaluation
- When supervision is scheduled
- Clarification that each of the supervisors can consult with each other.
- Clear communication that both supervisors are listed on the supervisees malpractice insurance.
