Fostering Counselors' Development in Group Supervision. ERIC Digest.
Werstlein, Pamela O.
This digest focuses on issues of group supervision of counselors and counselor trainees. It begins by describing the merits of group supervision, noting that group supervision is unique in that growth is aided by the interactions occurring between group members. Collaborative learning is identified as a pivotal benefit of group supervision, with the supervisees having opportunities to be exposed to a variety of cases, interventions, and approaches to problem-solving in the group. Models of group supervision are briefly summarized. The group supervision format requires that supervisors be prepared to use their knowledge of group process. Based on existing group supervision literature, and small group literature, a set of guidelines are offered to supervisors who wish to address process in group supervision. The digest concludes that the integration of knowledge and experience is greatly enhanced by group supervision. (NB)
