Supervisees' and Supervisors' Experiences of Group Climate in Group Supervision in Psychotherapy: Effects of Admission Procedure
Sundin, Eva C.; Ogren, Marie-Louise
Issues in Educational Research, v16 n2 p226-240 2006
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effects of two different admission procedures (high school grades/scholastic aptitude test (SAT) versus high school grades/SAT + interview) to a program in professional psychology on students' and supervisors' experiences of the group climate in psychotherapy supervision groups during an eighteen-month clinical practicum. A self-rating scale constructed to measure experiences of group climate in group supervision in psychotherapy was used. The results showed that students who were admitted based on the alternative admission procedure reported that their supervision groups had a more beneficial climate compared to those who were admitted based on high school grades/SAT. The evaluation suggested that admission via interviews together with high school grades/SAT is a good alternative to traditional admission procedures. (Contains 1 table.)
