Trends in Family Therapy Supervision: The Past 25 Years and into the Future
Lee, Robert E.; Nichols, David P.; Nichols, William C.; Odom, Temple
Journal of Marital and Family Therapy, v30 n1 p61-69 Jan 2004
This investigation repeats a survey of American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT) Approved Supervisors done in 1976 and 1986. Despite negative contemporary contextual influences, the AAMFT Approved Supervisor credential is still attractive to the same percentage of the AAMFT clinical membership as formerly and reflects in general the demographic characteristics of marriage and family therapists (MFTs) in clinical practice. Across the last quarter century there has been a steady increase in female AAMFT Approved Supervisors and those with terminal master's degrees. These and other trends are discussed with a view toward what supervision is becoming and what it needs to become.
