Commitment to Action in Supervision: Report of A National Survey by ACES Committee on Counselor Effectiveness.
Ryan, T. Antoinette; And Others
Coordination of counselor education and supervision is one of the major issues demanding immediate attention. Various background aspects are discussed: (1) the need for counseling supervision, (2) the function of counseling supervision, (3) the goals of supervision, (4) the status of supervision, and (5) the purposes of this study. Included in this last point are the congruence of supervision in practice now and the ideal, and the articulation between supervision in counseling preparation and on-the-job counseling. While much has been written on supervision, there is little agreement on function and technique. Various research studies are cited. Instruments were developed by a Committee on Counselor Effectiveness and sent to 2,000 members of the Association of Counselor Education and Supervision. Of the 2,000 sent, 613 were returned. After analyzing the data, six recommendations were presented, including: (1) the qualifications of supervision competencies be made more explicit, and (2) that supervisors be required to have training in supervision. Complete data is included, as well as bibliographies at the end of each section. (Author/KJ)
