Course Description:

This CEU course on supervision for nursing in mental health and addiction settings was written and published by Te Pou o Te Whakaaro Nui, the National Centre of Mental Health Research, Information and Workforce Development.  It is designed to provide a review of current approaches to professional supervision internationally and in the New Zealand mental health and addiction sector.

According to Te Pou, “Professional Supervision in mental health and addiction services is a key aspect of working with service users and their families. It enables practitioners to engage safely and effectively with a focus on a quality experience for everyone involved.  Professional Supervision establishes boundaries around the relationships between practitioner, service user, family and support agencies. The result is effective treatment outcomes. Ultimately, supervision enables growth, development and new ways of working that contribute to a positive experience for all people who have contact with mental health and addiction services.”  The executive summary states that “This project was designed to investigate current approaches to professional supervision for mental health and addiction nurses within District Health Boards (DHBs) and Non-Government Organizations (NGOs) across New Zealand and internationally.  The report begins with a literature review of international best practice in relation to professional supervision for mental health and addiction nurses. This is followed by survey research on the provision of professional supervision across DHBs and NGOs. This involved mail and telephone surveys with DHB Directors of Mental Health Nursing, NGO nurse managers and a sample of supervisors currently providing professional supervision.”


This continuing education course serves as an excellent resource for nurses as well as   social workers, psychologists, counselors and other licensed mental health professionals who work in the area of mental health counseling or addiction treatment.  This CE on supervision helps to build skills through knowledge as a means to earn CEUs.  It is designed specifically for nurses, however, psychologists, social workers, counselors and marriage and family therapists who work with multidisciplinary teams can benefit from this course and earn supervision continuing education credits. This course may also be helpful for other practitioners, such as midwives and dieticians and nutritionists who may also need a continuing education course in supervision.


This course is appropriate for intermediate and advanced level practitioners who wish to learn more about supervision in mental health and addictions settings..  It is also a good resource for licensed professionals who need continuing education.  CEUs in clinical supervision are required for clinical supervisors’ renewal in many states.
