Bibliosupervision: A Creative Supervision Technique
Graham, Mary Amanda; Pehrsson, Dale-Elizabeth
Journal of Creativity in Mental Health, v4 n4 p366-374 2009
This article offers a guide for bibliosupervision, a creative intervention that can be used when supervising counseling students. Bibliosupervision assists students in developing trust with the supervisor, as well as trust in their own abilities as emerging counselors. This supervisory process promotes the exploration of themes that might otherwise be intimidating for or inaccessible to students. Bibliosupervision draws from the theoretical and therapeutic constructs of bibliotherapy and deals with identification, catharsis, and insight as these apply to situations within which students are learning and practicing counseling skills. A protocol, guideline, and adaptations are offered as well as a suggested book list that addresses supervision themes.
