I have just received my limited license master's social worker (LLMSW). What supervision must I have?

In order to become fully licensed, you must complete 4,000 hours of supervised practice in the practice modality in which you want to be licensed -- clinical or macro. Supervision must be provided by a fully licensed MSW.

You can work no less than 16 hours but no more than 40 hours per week. You can earn credit for up to 2,000 hours of experience per year. You cannot be granted more than 2,000 hours per year. Supervisory review must be conducted for at least 4 hours per month with at least 1 hour of review being on an individual basis. Supervision may also be conducted in a group setting as long as 50% of the group supervision includes individual contact during which active functions and records of the limited licensee are reviewed.
