Effects of Supervisor Style upon the Learning of Empathy in a Supervision Dialogue.
Payne, Paul A.; And Others
Pertinent literature on supervision was cursorily reviewed to provide a backdrop for this study, which extends the work of Payne and Gralinski. Technique-oriented supervision was compared with counseling-oriented supervision, with the employment of additional experimental and control groups. 54 male and 54 female undergraduates in Introductory Psychology were divided into six groups, four of which received presupervision audiomodeling on the meaning of empathy. The subjects were then assigned a supervisor and "trained" with one of three supervisory methods: (1) technique-type; (2) counseling-type; and (3) placebo-type. A full description of the method is presented. The study concludes that technique-oriented supervision is superior to the counseling-type on the criterion of empathy. Significant learning effects from the presupervision audiomodeling were also found. (TL)
