Perceptions of Interview Behavior and Relationships in Counseling Supervision.
Santoro, David A.
This research explores possible connections between supervisory activity and the quality of the supervisory relationship. An effort was made to answer the following three questions: (1) What is the nature of the perceived interview behavior between supervisor and trainee? (2) What is the nature of the perceived supervisory relationship between practicum supervisors and trainees? and (3) What relationships, if any, accrue between perception of interview behavior and the perceptions of practicum supervisors and their respective counselor trainees? Subjects were four supervisors and 20 trainees. The procedure used to test the questions involved having each of the supervisors and their trainees view, code, and discuss trainee video tapes interview behavior. Supervisor-trainee perceptions of interview behavior were measured by the Counselor-Client Behavior Analysis System. The quality of the supervisory relationship was measured by the Barret Lennard Relationship Inventory. Findings include the following: (1) significant variability in interview analysis patterns was manifested between separate supervisory groups; and (2) various relationships accrued between perceptions of interview behavior and perceptions of practicum supervisors and their respective counselor trainees.
