Supervision Based on Self-Initiation and Self-Analysis.
Redekopp, J. P.
Supervision based on self-initiation and self-analysis (SSISA) is realistic and has great possibilities. This manuscript presents a thought process fostering the user's reliance on observed data solicited from another person when making decisions. In this context, supervision helps a supervisee attain professional status most efficiently, using a preparatory route based on individual readiness. The supervisor becomes a resource person who delivers observations and assists with analysis at the supervisee's request. Since the results of all formal interactions are recorded in formative reports, this cumulative information provides the basis for the summative report. At first glance, SSISA may seem to give the supervisee too much responsibility. However, sound professional preparation occurs within a process aimed toward continuous growth. The supervisee acquires the means for continued self-initiation and analysis leading from one accomplishment or insight to the next. In some cases, the information received will lead to withdrawal from an educational program or to refusal of certification. To succeed, the supervisor must develop an appropriate relationship with the supervisee, help the supervisee develop self-initiation and -analysis abilities, and learn a set of evaluation procedures. Two appendices provide student survey data and a recommendation for the Redekopp program. (24 references) (MLH)
