Additional comment/addendum

For addition to my previous comment

Any changes to the foundational and legal underpinning of the clinical social work supervision approach in the Commonwealth should receive a thorough evaluation of the impact on all stakeholders; clinical social work supervisors, supervisees in social work, employing organizations, and consumers of social work services. A regulatory change of this magnitude is not without consequences to all of these entities. For this reason alone, the regulations should be appropriately vetted by the industry, and not be fast-tracked.
