An Evaluation of a Clinical Supervision Course Format.
Caruso, Michele; And Others
A survey of doctoral students who had completed a course in clinical supervision was conducted to assess students' perceptions of the effectiveness of supervision training tasks. Of the 45 surveys mailed, 27 were returned. Results indicated that the majority of respondents agreed or strongly agreed that all training tasks were effective in facilitating supervision skills. In particular, the respondents found that the most productive supervision tasks were the presentations of a developmental model of supervision and 1 hour per week of individual supervision of counselor trainees. Respondents reported that the least productive tasks were the viewing of videotapes of other supervisors in order to obtain personal growth readings and understand counselor trainees' developmental issues. It is suggested that further research be conducted comparing the perceptions of satisfaction reported by counselor trainees who were supervised by trained staff with the perceptions of satisfaction reported by trainees who were supervised by staff with no supervision training. The developmental process experienced by supervisor trainees during training warrants further investigation. Contains 12 references. (TS)
