This webinar is designed for graduate students to engage, network, and understand supervision in a different way. The SCCA is hoping to fill the gap between graduate school and licensure. The students will prepare questions to ask the Supervisors prior to the Webinar and the Supervisors on the panel will answer the questions in a roundtable style. This is an opportunity for students to connect and network with other professionals in the field.
