You are the Director of Training in a Master’s program in Counseling. Sally is one of the students in your program who is a month away from completing her internship at a local counseling center where she has been for the past 10 months.

Consider the following scenario:
You are the Director of Training in a Master’s program in Counseling. Sally is one of the students in your program who is a month away from completing her internship at a local counseling center where she has been for the past 10 months. Sally sets up a meeting with you to discuss some issues she is experiencing with her supervisor, Dr. Leinhertz, a male Psychologist. Sally reports to you that she has grown increasingly uncomfortable with her weekly supervision with Dr. Leinhertz. She explained that over the last two months, he has increased her supervision from once a week to 2-3 times per week and that the conversations have turned more personal (i.e., asking probing questions about family, dating history, etc.), which is making Sally feel very uncomfortable.
In your initial post, address each of the following questions and items:
What are the potential ethical issues in this scenario?
How would you advise Sally to address the situation?
What do you see as the ethical obligations of yourself (The Training Director), Dr. Leinhertz, and Sally?
