There are four elements of a supervisor’s philosophy that are especially pertinent to those who work with supervisees who treat military or veteran populations.

For this part of the assignment, you will develop a philosophy statement that documents ways in which your supervision may be shaped by the following:

  1. Important factors to consider for a therapist who serves:
  2. military families who live on base, are at diverse ranks, have experienced combat, have returned from deployment, and reside in civilian communities.
  3. veterans/former military who are treated through a VA clinic.
  4. individuals who are affiliated with a specific branch/reserve component.
  5. Knowledge of various methods of supervision (individual/group, live/audio/dead supervision, online-based) particularly within complex contexts (e.g., one partner is stationed at one part of the U.S. and their family lives elsewhere, or where one is deployed and the other is stateside).
  6. Ability to demonstrate ethical and legal components that pertain to the uniqueness of military and veteran contexts/rules/experiences (e.g., fit for duty, confidentiality [or lack thereof] between provider and unit command).
  7. Awareness of personal and professional values and belief systems that might impact your work with MFT supervisees who serve military and/or veteran populations.
  8. How you will attend to supervisees at risk for burnout and compassion fatigue.                                                                                                                         References for Part II                                                                                                                     Managing Ethical Challenges to Mental Health Research in Post-Conflict Settings

Your response should address the following:

  • Identify some key elements that you would want to ensure are a part of your joining process with someone who may be at risk for moral injury.
  • Describe three important areas for assessment in determining whether or not someone is struggling with a moral injury.
  • Describe at least two treatment techniques that you could facilitate with a service member and their partner or family pertaining to moral injury.
  • Describe how you would evaluate progress toward the service member’s treatment, based on what you know about moral injury.

Marriage and Family Therapy

  • Describe a case vignette that involves an ethical dilemma associated with consent or confidentiality in relation to a military or veteran client or population.
  • Discuss how you would respond to this dilemma as a marriage and family therapist. Be sure to cite which standards from the AAMFT Code of Ethics were relevant to this dilemma, and how you responded to the situation described in #1 above.
  • Describe the steps you would take if you were the supervisor for the therapist who was treating the client in the scenario you provided in #1 above. Make sure that you provide information that is unique to the role of the supervisor (i.e., it shouldn’t be a repeat of what you provide in #2). What might you do as a supervisor to help ensure that consent and confidentiality are attended to in an appropriate manner by the supervisee?
  • Provide four questions and rationale to explain why you chose these questions, which a supervisor should ask their marriage and family therapy supervisees to ensure that consent or confidentiality is upheld with military or veteran clients.
  • Make sure to include elements of diversity and address cultural differences in your presentation.
