MaMHCA: Massachusetts Mental Health Counselors Association


Clinical Supervisor Training and Certification

Training and Certification of Approved Supervisors is a national trend in mental health counseling.

MaMHCA’s program reflects and enlarges upon research on best practices in supervision, conducted by the American Association of State Counseling Boards (AASCB).

The MaMHCA Certified Clinical Supervision Training program is open to all LMHCs (and other Master's Level, Licensed, Mental Health disciplines).

The courses can be taken in any order (although we suggest starting with the Core Courses). Many LMHCs who have completed the trainings and become MaMHCA Certified Clinical Supervisors are currently receiving referrals for Contract Supervision  (see below)
