The Professional Matrix

Providing Supervision

Providing supervision is an excellent way to share your experience, knowledge and expertise with those entering the field, and to give back to the profession.

For general information on supervision (cost, requirements, policies) please see the General Info page.

Supervisors will set their own hours, availability and location preferences.

Supervisees are able to have more than one supervisor. If you are able to provide only some of the required hours, The Professional Matrix will assist the supervisee in meeting the remaining requirement with another available supervisor.

The supervisor list for The Professional Matrix is not public information. We will connect people by location, area of speciality/experience, times available, supervisor availability, supervisee's supervison needs, and supervisee choice after given the supervisor's bio.

The Supervisor is an Independent Contractor.

Supervisors must be able to supervise other professionals according to the rules and regulations set forth by The MN Board of Social Work.

The Professional Matrix will connect supervisors with supervisees, bill for all services, and issue payment for services rendered.

The Professional Matrix will require all supervisors to sign an independent contractor agreement. The following is a summary of the agreement:

  • The Professional Matrix will 1) Collect payment from supervisees and 2) Send payment from collected revenue to the supervisor on a monthly basis.
  • Supervisors will be expected to maintain professional licensure as well as necessary requirements to maintain ability to provide supervision to supervisees.
  • Supervisors will agree to inform The Professional Matrix if changes occur with Licensure or ability to provide supervision.

  • 1099 MISC will be given to anyone earning an income with The Professional Matrix

Supervision Liability

"Although supervisors do not offer direct services to patients, they do indirectly affect the level of service offered through their impact on the supervisee. They share the responsibility for services provided to the patient and can be held liable for negligent or inadequate supervision related to negligent conduct by the supervisee."

(NASW Clinical Social Work, Practice Update. Volume 3, Number 2, June 2003).

Supervisors are responsible for all liability regarding the supervision given. Supervisors may need to consider private malpractice insurance if needed. Such malpractice insurance will be paid by the supervisor. The Professional Matrix has no part, or agreement with such insurance policies.

The Professional Matrix will not be responsible for any liability regarding supervision sought or received at any time.
