IC&RC, the world leader in the credentialing of addiction-related professionals, is in the process of updating its Job Analysis (JA) for its Certified Clinical Supervisor (CCS) credential.
A JA study is the methodical process IC&RC uses to determine elements of practice and knowledge to assess as part of its certification examinations. It clearly delineates the role of a Clinical Supervisor and the knowledge, skills, and tasks that are necessary to demonstrate competence. The JA will then serve as the content outline for IC&RC’s Clinical Supervisor Examination.
As part of the JA study, IC&RC is asking currently practicing Clinical Supervisors (CS) to complete a short survey. The survey rates the importance of tasks performed by an entry level CS. For the purpose of this survey, an entry level CS is defined as a person who has:
- Prerequisite credential of an IC&RC ADC, AADC, CCJP, CCDP, or CCDPD credential OR a specialty substance abuse credential in another professional discipline in human services at a Master’s level or higher
- 30 credit hours of education specific to the CCS examination content outline
- 10,000 hours (5 years) of alcohol and drug counseling experience, with a minimum of 4,000 of those hours (2 years) of clinical practice as a Clinical Supervisor
Respondents should be currently working as a CS and rate each task importance based on an entry level CS as described above. Respondents do not need to hold a Clinical Supervisor certification or license to participate but should meet or surpass the above-mentioned requirements.
The survey takes approximately 10 minutes to complete.
If you know other Clinical Supervisors currently working in the field, please forward them the link to this survey so they may have an opportunity to provide their feedback.
The survey will be open from November 21-December 23, 2016.
