Abstract

Counseling supervisors have an ethical responsibility to be gatekeepers to the profession and to protect the public from harm. When a Licensed Professional Counselor – Supervisor (LPC-S) in Louisiana is not also the Provisional Licensed Professional Counselor’s (PLPC) on-site supervisor, insight regarding the PLPC’s behaviors may be lacking and therefore decreases the ability of the LPC-S to identify potential remediation areas. The author presents a method to help supervision only LPC-Ss ensure their gatekeeping responsibilities through consented communications with on-site administrative supervisors.
