Metaphoric Stories in Supervision of Internship: A Qualitative Study
Sommer, Carol A.; Ward, Janice E.; Scofield, Thomas
Journal of Counseling & Development, v88 n4 p500-507 Fall 2010
The authors describe a qualitative study that explored how the use of stories in supervision may contribute to self-reflection in master's-level counseling interns. Interns from 2 universities participated in facilitated discussions of 3 fairy tales throughout a semester. The analysis of storied discussions revealed 3 themes related to supervisee experience: recurring cycles of highs and lows, balancing external and internal influences, and struggles with self-awareness. Suggestions for practice and future research are included.
