Intervention Strategies in Counselor Supervision.
West, John; Sonstegard, Manford
This paper contains a model for practicum supervision developed by Dr. Manford Sonstegard. The procedure allows the supervisor, student-counselor, client, and practicum class to participate in the session. Whereas one-way mirrors, audio tapes and audio-visual tapes allow for only delayed feedback from the supervisor, Dr. Sonstegard's approach permits on-the-spot instruction. This helps prevent the counseling session from getting sidetracked by irrelevant approaches. Counseling philosophies which perceive client concerns as deep-seated intrapsychic conflicts might not be effective in a group practicum; however, the present approach views the client's concerns as based on faulty perceptions for gaining a sense of worth among others. The procedure has been used with students who are interested in learning family counseling, group counseling, and individual counseling. The paper presents a demonstration of a student-counselor receiving supervision in family counseling. Benefits of this approach to practicum supervision are indicated. The method for instructional intervention and feedback differentiates Dr. Sonstegard's model from multiple therapy. (Author)
