The Clinical Supervision Process.
This document defines clinical supervision as an intensive, interpersonally-focused, one-to-one relationship in which one person is designated to facilitate the development of therapeutic competence in the other person. Ways in which supervision is similar to, and different from, therapy are explained. The following stages in the clinical supervision process are outlined: (1) establishing a working relationship; (2) assessing the supervisee's skills; (3) establishing learning goals and a contract for supervision; and (4) selecting interventions and evaluating progress. Ideas are presented to help the supervisor work through each of the four stages. The section on stage 2, assessing the supervisee's skills offers ideas for assessing performance counseling skills, cognitive counseling skills, and the supervisee's developmental level. The section on stage 4, selecting interventions and evaluating progress presents ideas for a number of supervision interventions, including self-reports, self-reports compared to actual sessions, audiotapes and videotapes, microtraining, interpersonal process recall, modeling, role playing, live observation, and live supervision. Evaluation methods described include the portfolio method, the individualized learning program, microcounseling procedures, self-supervision, and supervisor monitoring. Relevant materials for supervision are appended. (NB)
