This course constitutes three hours of formal training in supervision to fulfill Board of Psychology (BOP) and Board of Behavioral Sciences (BBS) regulations in California.

There are three hours of material in this course. The first hour duplicates an hour that was contained in the On Becoming a Supervisor: Principles of Clinical Supervision course. The second hour is new material focusing specifically on California rules and regulations. The third hour is on risk management which California clinicians have available to them in the On Becoming a Supervisor: Principles of Clinical Supervision course but would have constituted the seventh hour and so does not need to be taken at that time.

Who can I supervise and what qualifies me as a supervisor? How much supervision is required? How do I handle vacation time? How do I minimize my risk? What are the risk factors in supervision? These questions and more will be addressed in the program California Rules, Regulations and Risk Management
