Structured Peer Group Supervision.
Borders, L. DiAnne
The merits of peer group supervision have been advocated widely, but the actual practice has been described infrequently. The structured peer group format is a model that provides an organizational structure and a systematic procedure for conducting peer groups. In application, the approach can be adapted to match the developmental levels of the counselors and the supervisor. Members also receive training in methods and skills that they can use in supervising their colleagues and themselves throughout their professional careers. In addition, the approach emphasizes development of conceptualization skills and enhances cognitive growth in general. Illustrations from actual groups are included, and some extensions of the approach are suggested. (Author/TE)
