Scoring: These statements are mostly for self-reflection, so no specific scoring key exists. However, the more of the preceding statements that fit you, the more trustworthy you are-assuming you are answering truthfully. The usefulness of this self-quiz increases if somebody who knows you well answers it for you to supplement your self-perceptions.

The Development and Evaluation of the Intersectional Privilege Screening Inventory for Use With Counselors‐in‐Training
As counselor preparation programs are compelled to demonstrate student social and cultural competence, valid inventories are needed to measure development consistent with contemporary standards. The Intersectional Privilege Screening Inventory was created for this purpose, was assessed using 4 types of validity evidence, and has results supporting its use in student development.
Preliminary Validation of the Feelings Experienced in Supervision Scale
The authors conducted a preliminary validation of the Feelings Experienced in Supervision Scale (FESS), with findings supporting a single‐factor instrument. Relationships between the FESS and attachment patterns, cognitive distortions, and difficulty with corrective feedback are reported. Implications include emotion‐focused supervision to identify thoughts and feelings interfering with supervisees' ability to synthesize corrective feedback.
Development and Validation of the Supervisee Disclosure in Supervision Scale
The authors developed and initially validated the Supervisee Disclosure in Supervision Scale (SDSS). Exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses with 2 independent samples revealed that the SDSS is a 17‐item instrument with 2 subscales showing promising psychometric properties. The authors discuss the findings with implications for supervision training, practices, and research.
Supervisor Cultural Humility Predicts Intentional Nondisclosure by Post‐Master's Counselors
The authors examined supervisor cultural humility as a predictor of supervisee intentional nondisclosure. Using multiple regression in a sample of 101 post‐master's counselors, the authors found that 20% of supervisees' intentional nondisclosure was explained by their perceptions of their supervisors' level of cultural humility.
Emotion Regulation for Counselors‐in‐Training: A Grounded Theory
The authors explored emotion regulation (ER) among 25 counseling professionals (master's‐level counselors‐in‐training and counseling supervisors) using grounded theory and established 5 themes: (a) emotional experiences, (b) emotion processing, (c) metacognition, (d) emotional self‐protection, and (e) emotional support. The emerging theory provides a foundation for teaching and practicing ER.
