Scoring: These statements are mostly for self-reflection, so no specific scoring key exists.

The usefulness of this self-quiz increases if somebody who knows you well answers it for you to supplement your self-perceptions.

Counselor Education and Supervision: 2017 Inaugural Review
This article includes a review of 100 peer‐reviewed journal articles regarding counselor education and supervision published in 2017. Areas reviewed include supervision, understanding stakeholders, teaching and training, and professional issues. Publications featured a blend of research methodologies, attention to complexity in supervision and teaching, and incorporation of student experiences.
Supervisee Attachment, Cognitive Distortions, and Difficulty With Corrective Feedback
Among a sample of counseling students, results from hierarchical regression and mediation analyses indicated that attachment anxiety led to an increase in use of cognitive distortions, contributing to increased difficulty with corrective feedback during clinical supervision. Findings implicate a need for awareness of attachment patterns among trainees and the possible utility of cognitively focused supervisory interventions.
Multicultural Training Resistances: Critical Incidents for Students of Color
Thirty‐two master’s students of color reported critical incidents of multicultural learning resistances. Qualitative findings suggest that students attributed resistances to limited program diversity and attention to cultural dynamics. Quantitative analyses indicate a racial difference in how students’ perceptions of peers influenced resistances. Recommendations include increasing educator cultural dialogue facilitation skills.
A 15‐Year Content Analysis of Three Qualitative Research Traditions

The results indicate a distinct pattern of qualitative research practices in professional counseling.
