CAMFT recognizes that therapists who undertake the responsibility of
supervising others owe those persons a duty to possess the knowledge and
skills necessary to provide competent supervision. CAMFT also recognizes

clinical/treatment skills, and that knowledge and skills required for
supervision and clinical treatment are different. For that reason, CAMFT
has created the voluntary CAMFT Certified Supervisor Program. As a CAMFT
member, you receive a discount when completing the program.
