M I approach supervision from a collaborative framework using the Discrimination Model. The general areas that receive attention in supervision include the supervisee’s professional behaviors, counseling skills, personal awareness, and client/case conceptualization. Supervisory roles include teacher, evaluator, consultant, and counselor. I follow a developmental approach to supervision primarily using the teacher role with novice supervisees and consultation with more experienced supervisees. Audio and videotapes, and case reports are utilized in the supervision process. I consider intentionality to be paramount in a counselor’s practice. As such, I work with supervisees to become aware of their thoughts and feelings with respect to the counseling relationship and process. Facilitating this awareness, including attention to the motivation behind interventions, is an important aspect of supervision.
