Site Supervisor Resources

Thank You!

The faculty and students of the Counseling Graduate Program at Austin Peay State University wish to thank you for your generous contribution of valuable time in serving as an on-site supervisor for practicum and internship students. Your efforts help promote excellence in the field of Counseling and the supervisory role you play will elevate the quality of education and directly impact the professional development of the intern at your site.

Supervisor Requirements

In order to meet CACREP accreditation requirements, all supervisors must show proof of receiving some form of supervision training.  If you have not received supervision training, or cannot provide proof of receiving supervision training, please go to the Supervisor Training Resources page to find supervisor training modules.  At the end of the module is a brief quiz.  Once you have completed the module and the quiz, we will send you a certificate of completion.


Expectations for Practicum and Internship Students

In compliance with CACREP standards, we require practicum students to complete 100 hours (120 hours for school counseling) at practicum sites. Interns are required to complete 600 hours at internship sites. Students attend a university group supervision seminar each week in which they will be required present case staffings and, if possible, share videotapes or audio recordings of counseling sessions. This method allows for the most effective feedback to enhance the learning experience of the developing intern. Additionally, students must maintain logs of their time spent at the site and develop a learning contract approved by both on-site and university supervisors. A foundation for these learning contracts can be accessed in the internship manual. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, students are required to receive weekly on-site supervision for one hour. This supervision takes place continuously throughout the duration of the field experience.
