In the clinical mentorship agreement format, you must have a section about liability. This section ensures that each Party is liable for their actions and whose responsibility is to get insurance coverage. Generally, the Supervisee is the one that should have insurance coverage, as they’re the one practicing during the meetings.
The Supervisor and Supervisee both maintain professional liability insurance. However, the Supervisee will provide insurance coverage documentation to the Supervisor before the Effective Date.
The Supervisee/Supervisor will call 911 and/or the (State) Crisis Emergency Line should a client be in imminent danger of a threat, suicide, or homicide. Should either Party learn of child/adult/elder/dependent abuse, they must contact the (State) reporting line within 24 hours.
Further, should both Parties not be present during the client emergency, the Supervisee must contact and inform the Supervisor, preferably within (Number) hours. The Supervisee must also inform any appropriate individual at their employment agency.
Should the Supervisee be unable to contact the Supervisor, they must contact the next agreed-upon person, listed below as Emergency Contact:
