Using Motivational Interviewing Techniques to Address Parallel Process in Supervision
Giordano, Amanda; Clarke, Philip; Borders, L. DiAnne
Counselor Education and Supervision, v52 n1 p15-29 Mar 2013
Supervision offers a distinct opportunity to experience the interconnection of counselor-client and counselor-supervisor interactions. One product of this network of interactions is parallel process, a phenomenon by which counselors unconsciously identify with their clients and subsequently present to their supervisors in a similar fashion (Searles, 1955). Addressing parallel process has the potential to be valuable in the advancement of counselor development, but few strategies exist in the literature for working with the phenomenon. The authors describe the use of motivational interviewing as one method for effectively addressing parallel process in supervision.
