Training of Supervisors through Videotaped Vignettes.
Yager, Geoffrey G.; And Others
One of the difficulties counselor supervisors face is the lack of specific training in learning to deal with difficult supervisees. To address practical as well as theoretical concerns, two related sets of videotapes were prepared. The first set was designed to provide a stimulus for discussions of common supervisory problems. A role player presented a difficult supervisee role to each of three doctoral level supervisors, who illustrated one of three supervisory methods: skill development (teaching), personal growth (counseling), or integration (collaboration). Three short videotapes were made to illustrate each supervisory model. The second set of tapes recorded participating students' discussion of the videotaped role plays and their responses to the exercise. Although the learning of those who participated in the filming may be the most dramatic, supervisory trainees who observe the videotapes and discuss their own reactions should also be better able to handle such situations in actual practice.
