Objective Ratings of Monitor-Modeling Supervision in Practicum.
Silverman, Manuel S.; Quinn, Philip F.
Two groups of 12 practicum trainees were exposed to either Monitor-modeling or Immediate-feedback supervision. Ten minute counseling sessions with coached clients were taped before and after the practicum. Three independent judges rated the tapes, using Carkhuff's scales for "Gross ratings of facilitative interpersonal functioning" to assess the level of facilitative conditions offered by the trainees, and the trainees' action orientation (Carkhuff, 1969). Results indicated that: (1) the judges' ratings from pre-test to post-test increased significantly for the Monitor-modeling group, but not for the Immediate-feedback group; (2) although the results approached significance, there were no significant differences between the two groups on the post-test; and (3) the amount of growth from pre-test to post-test was significantly greater from the Monitor-modeling group. Since the ratings used in this study were considered to be a more accurate evaluation of facilitative skills than the global ratings used in a previous study with similar results, these data lend further support to the relative effectiveness of Monitor-modeling supervision. Due to the small sample and the local situation of the study, additional research is recommended. References are included. (Author)
