Continuing Education

Certified Supervisor Program
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 that, although interrelated, supervision skills are different than 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.
