Peer Rating Form in Counselor Supervision.
Carmichael, Karla D.
A literature review of the use of peer supervisors in counselor training and supervision identified theories which mention the use of peers in the supervision process and revealed several points for consideration in selecting peer supervisors and implementing a peer supervision program. A Likert-style peer supervision rating form was developed and tested as a practical way to keep trainees focused on observations in counseling skills. The purpose of the peer supervision rating sheet was to stimulate more research in the area of peer supervision. Ten counselor trainees role-played counseling sessions, while their peers rated them. Discussions of the ratings followed, with specific interest in the difference between 1 (poor), 3 (average), and 5 (excellent) for each item on the scale. In group supervision, the peer supervisors shared the ratings with the student who was observed, and each peer supervisor discussed how the observed student might improve individual ratings. As an outgrowth of the peer supervision, the supervisees took a more active role in requesting help from the supervisors, and their requests for skill development were more specific than in previous years. (Indications for further research are provided, and the rating form is appended.) (TE)
