A Model of Effective Fieldwork Supervision for Trainee Educational Psychologists
Atkinson, Cathy; Woods, Kevin
Educational Psychology in Practice, v23 n4 p299-316 Dec 2007
This study seeks to provide current survey data from qualified psychologists about effective supervision, in view of increased fieldwork supervision demands, due to restructured initial professional training. A model of effective fieldwork supervision emerges in which a well-managed and communicative partnership between trainee psychologist and supervisor is formed, in the context of the psychological service, its partners and clients. The authors anticipate that this may support the supervision needs of qualified colleagues, and speculate upon what additional provisions might be relevant in Years 2 and 3 when trainee psychologists will have a dual role as university students and practitioners within services. (Contains 2 tables and 3 figures. Appended are: (1) Questionnaire; and (2) Respondent information.)
