In dyads or triads, explore your thoughts about the ethical issues raised in the following situations. What would be your course of action in these situations?
You are aware that a clinical supervisor has made it a practice to have sexual relationships with several of his supervisees. Some of these students are friends of yours, and they tell you that they felt pressure to comply because they were in a vulnerable position. What would you do? Several of your friends tell you that a clinical supervisor at the university makes it a practice to date former supervisees. When colleagues confronted him in the past, he maintained that all of these trainees were adults, that none of them were his supervisees when he dated them, and that what he did in his private life was strictly his own business. What are your reactions to his behavior? Imagine yourself as a supervisee in an internship placement in a community agency. Your supervisor at this agency makes inappropriate advances to you. How might you react? What would you do? You determine that your supervisor is incompetent. How could you deal with this situation? A supervisor has determined that a supervisee is not meeting the expectations of the training site due to not being fully truthful regarding interventions with clients, minimizing client presenting issues, and not responding to supervisory feedback. How should the supervisor best approach the supervisee with these concerns?
