Supervision: Enhancing Supervisees Clinical Skills
On this track, we will discuss the three main reasons to train clinical supervisees in the use of supervision. In addition, we will also discuss the special skills, knowledges, and attitudes a clinical supervisee should acquire when entering a supervisee-supervisor relationship.
As you are well aware, there is still a lack of research into supervision in a clinical setting. What research there is emphasizes the importance of educating clinical supervisees on the supervision process. One study by Byrne revealed that out of thirty-three trainee counselors, 49% had received no formal training for the supervision process. Another study by Kaberry, focusing on abuse in clinical supervision, concluded that the best way to avoid abuse in clinical supervision is for the supervisees to be prepared so that he or she knows what to expect in the process, and can be assertive if receiving poor supervision.
3 Reasons to Train Clinical Supervisees in Supervision
Six Key Skills
As you may be aware, several state licensure regulations regulate the format and length of the meetings required. If you are not sure if your state regulates the format and length of the meetings between a supervisor and supervisee, check the internet. Do you agree that teaching this skill helps supervisors and supervisees find methods that suit the developmental needs and learning style of the supervisee most effectively?
--Skill # 5 - Fifth, I find it important to educate clinical supervisees in the process of feedback. Regarding feedback, we discuss both how to be open to it, and how to be prepared to monitor his or her practice according to this feedback.
--Skill # 6 - Finally, in addition to developing awareness of internal processes and client interaction, presenting work economically, negotiating presentation styles and schedules, and accepting feedback, I find that the sixth important skill I convey for supervisees is how to monitor and review his or her use of supervision, and how to take responsibility for giving feedback to his or her supervisor about the supervision received. I also convey how useful this feedback has been to the supervisee and his or her clients.
7 Point Assessment for Interpersonal Process Recall
Would it be beneficial to play this track for your supervisee to ask them to write a few words in response to each of these seven points following a session with a client?
On this track, we have discussed the three main reasons to train supervisees in the use of supervision. These are training is empowering, the formation of a clear working alliance, and creating a facilitative relationship. In addition, we have discussed the special skills, knowledges, and attitudes a supervisee should acquire when entering a supervisee-supervisor relationship. These include awareness of moment-to-moment interactions, and the ability to present work economically.
On the next track we will discuss the contracting process, and the five main benefits provided by contracting. These are, both parties become actively involved in the supervision process, a contract provides a clear perception of goals, the supervisor and supervisee create a clear picture of what their work looks like together, contracting creates mutuality and guards against the abuse of power, and contracts minimize covert agendas.
