Adequate and appropriate supervision of interns is frequently identified as a significant problem by training programs while, on their part, field placement sites often indicate that training programs generate expectations for interns that are not always "in synch" with district expectations of school psychologists. As a result of an increasing awareness of concerns voiced by students, supervisors, and trainers, several Massachusetts training programs and school districts collaborated in providing supervision institutes for practicum and intern supervisors in 2008 and 2009. These institutes were intended to foster cooperation, collaboration, and communication among stakeholders and to address the common issues that were identified as impediments to training. This article highlights the positive outcomes of the collaborative supervision institutes of the Massachusetts School Psychology Trainers (MA-SPT), and discusses the agendas for these institutes.
