The supervisor needs to be a doctoral level psychologist who is licensed at the independent level in psychology. It is important to check before you begin being supervised that your supervisor has been appropriately trained and experienced in addition to being licensed. Since licensing is generic in some states/provinces, licensure alone does not guarantee that a psychologist is an appropriate supervisor in terms of having been trained as a health service provider. In addition, if the supervisor is a graduate of a program that is not regionally accredited or an approved doctoral program in psychology, that supervisor does not meet our requirements. Hopefully there were other supervisors who provided supervision.
