Using Peer Supervisors in Counselor Education Training: Research Findings
Stanard, Rebecca Powell; Hughes, Jeffrey T.
Perspectives in Peer Programs, v21 n1 p1-11 Spr 2008
The purpose of this study was to determine satisfaction with supervision and development of a working alliance in a peer group supervision model. Thirteen peer supervisors provided feedback to 31 trainees in the laboratory component of counseling skills classes. Trainees completed the Supervision Satisfaction Questionnaire (SSQ) (Ladany, Hill, Corbett, & Nutt, 1996) and the Supervisory Working Alliance Inventory-Trainee (SWAI-Trainee) (Efstation, Patton, & Kardash, 1990). Peer supervisors completed the SWAI-Supervisor. Results from both groups indicated satisfaction with the quality of supervision and development of a working alliance. Implications for counselor education and a detailed description of the peer supervision process are provided. (Contains 3 tables.)
