On-Site Counselor Education Supervisor Training Manual

School and Clinical Mental Health Counseling Programs

Andrews University


Dear Internship Supervisor:

The faculty and students of Counselor Education program at Andrews University wish to thank you for your generous contribution of valuable time in serving as an on-site supervisor to one of our interns. As they embark on this journey towards becoming professional counselors, this step represents perhaps one of the most important parts of their training.  Your efforts will help promote excellence in the field of Counseling, and the supervisory role you play will greatly elevate the quality of education and professional development of the intern at your site.

Andrews University’s Counseling programs are accredited by the Counsel for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP). CACREP standards state that all on-site supervisors must receive orientation, assistance, and consultation regarding clinical supervision of interns and our program. In order to meet this requirement we have prepared for you this document as you make ready for your role as supervisor. The information includes an overall orientation to the expectations we place on our interns, our On-Site Supervisors and other information relevant for both school and community agency supervisors. We hope you will find it helpful, informative and convenient to use. 

Since CACREP would like us to document that our On-Site Supervisors have received this preparation, we ask that you to read the manual and simply click here to send us notice that you have completed the training. Below is the link to the manual which opens into a PDF.  There is also a link to the Internship Handbook that includes additional information valuable to site supervisors as well as documents that students and their supervisors must complete. 

Please note that a faculty supervisor from the university will be in touch with you periodically throughout the placement and is here to provide whatever assistance you may need.  If you have any questions or require additional information, please let us know.  Please contact us at (269) 471-3473 and our secretary will forward your message to the appropriate supervisor.
