An Interactional Model of Supervision from a Developmental Perspective.
Lofaro, Gregory A.
This paper presents a model of counselor supervision which recognizes four specific stages of counselor development. The materials focus on the need for a developmental model, the interplay between this model and levels of training and professional practice, and the implications for curriculum planning and supervisory interventions. Studies currently examining this model are reviewed, as are previous studies on counselor supervision and counselor development. The development of the counselor through four stages is emphasized, including: (1) the beginning counselor who is dependent on the supervisor; (2) the supervisee who must resolve dependency conflicts with the supervisor; (3) the supervisee who emerges as a professional colleague; and (4) the supervisee who achieves a mastery level of counseling characterized by a high degree of professional and personal autonomy.
