Supervision

Robin Winke, LMSW, provides supervision to Limited License Social Workers and fully Licensed Social Workers. Robin has completed the NASW - Michigan Certificate in Core Supervision. The 2005 NASW Standards for Clinical social Work states that Clinical social workers shall maintain access to professional supervision and or consultation. The standards stipulate that social workers should receive supervision for the first five years of their professional experience. After five years, social workers are expected to receive supervision and consultation on an as-needed basis. Supervision is seen as a continuous and meaningful part of the profession NASW maintains that supervision is an essential and integral part of the training and continuing education required for the skillful development of professional social workers. Supervision protects clients, supports practitioners, and ensures that professional standards and quality services are delivered by competent social workers. In Michigan, all limited licensed social workers (LLMSW) (LLBSW) must obtain supervision in order to obtain a full license. We provide supervision to limited licensed and licensed social workers.

What is licensure supervision.

Licensure supervision is the mandatory professional mentoring required by the State of Michigan in order for a limited licensed social worker (both at the BSW and MSW level) to achieve a full license. In order to become fully licensed, you must complete 4,000 hours of supervised practicein the practice modality in which you want to be licensed --clinical or macro (the BSW license is a generalist license). Supervision must be provided by a fully licensed MSW (LMSW). If you are pursuing the clinical license your supervisor must have a clinical license. If you are pursuing macro licensure your supervisor must possess a macro license. You can work no less than 16 hours but no more than 40 hours per week. You can earn credit for up to 2,000 hours of social work experience per year. You cannot be granted more than 2,000 hours per year. Supervisory review must be conducted for at least 4 hours per month with at least 1 hour of review being on an individual basis. Supervision may also be conducted in a group setting as long as 50% of the group supervision includes individual contact in which active functions and records of the limited licensee are reviewed.

Does my supervisor need to be on site.

No. Supervision can be held in any location, but client confidentiality must be ensured.

Can I have multiple supervisors.

Yes. If you have more than one licensure supervisor, each person will need to complete a Supervisor’s Verification Formand mail it directly to the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) Bureau of Health Care Services upon completion of the supervision services.
