Supervising psychologists are licensed for the practice of psychology and abide by the ethical principles and state statutes pertaining to the practice of psychology. They are registered with the state as having sufficient training to render quality supervision.


They have adequate training, knowledge, and skill to render competently any psychological service, which the supervisee may undertake. The individual supervisor has sufficient knowledge of the supervisee’s clients in order to plan effective and efficacious service delivery.


Supervisors are ethically and legally responsible for the overall professional activities of the supervisee.  Supervisors have responsibility to interrupt or terminate the supervisee’s activities whenever necessary to insure adequate training and the protection of the public.


Supervisors avoid entering into dual relationships with their supervisees. They do not exploit or engage in sexual relationships with supervisees. Supervisors attempt to resolve any unforeseen interference which may be potentially harmful to the supervisor relationship with due regard for the best interests of the supervisee and after appropriate consultation.


Supervisors are available to supervisees after business hours in the case of supervisee or supervisee client crisis. Supervisors make reasonable effort to provide for another qualified supervisor in case of any interruption of supervision due to such factors as the supervisor’s illness, unavailability, or relocation.




Dr. Richard Sylvester (Director of Clinical Training) and Dr. Diedra Hayman are the primary supervisors throughout the entire internship year. Interns are required to complete four quarterly rotations, one of which is either a repeat of a previous rotation or their choice of a new rotation. Interns may meet with other licensed psychologists (secondary supervisors) during those rotations.


During each quarterly rotation, interns will have one hour of weekly individual supervision.  Additionally, interns will have the opportunity to speak with a primary supervisor at nearly any time via SARHC’s ‘open door’ supervision policy. Interns also attend group supervision for two hours each week.


Interns and their supervisors assess goals on a continuous basis and establish objectives, which are modified throughout the entire internship process to meet the trainee’s needs and interests.
