Attachment Theory in Supervision: A Critical Incident Experience
Pistole, M. Carole; Fitch, Jenelle C.
Counselor Education and Supervision, v47 n3 p193-205 Mar 2008
Critical incident experiences are a powerful source of counselor development (T. M. Skovholt & P. R. McCarthy, 1988a, 1988b) and are relevant to attachment issues. An attachment theory perspective of supervision is presented and applied to a critical incident case scenario. By focusing on the behavioral systems (i.e., attachment, caregiving, and exploratory) identified by J. Bowlby (1969), previous conceptualizations are expanded by illuminating relational concepts that supervisors could use to facilitate counselor learning.
