Supervision Research in Human Communication Disorders: A State-of-the-Art Review.
Pickering, Marisue; And Others
The review of the literature on supervision research in Human Communication Disorders examined papers given at the national conventions of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) from 1972 to 1987, dissertations from 1965 to 1987, and professional journals from 1972 to 1987. Patterns and trends in the conference presentations are identified including more presentations on evaluating and assessing students than any other topic. Among concerns and issues raised are the need for further dissemination of conference papers. The review of dissertations notes that most studies investigated supervisor/supervisee conferences with other studies on supervisory styles, perceptions, expectations, affective behaviors, and effectiveness. Concerns are raised about the need to resolve the question of supervisory effectiveness. The review of journals identified nine journals as the primary sources for refereed publications in supervision. Articles are classified into eight categories such as characteristics of student clinicians and methods/conditions of supervision. Concerns are raised about the high percentage of authors holding doctorates in contrast to the usual educational attainment of practitioners doing clinical supervision. Among overall conclusions is the need for more scholarly work in supervision especially to identify relationships between outcomes and aspects of the supervisory process. Over half the document consists of an extensive bibliography. (DB)
