Supervision Styles that are Perceived and Preferred by Supervisors and Supervisees: Case Studies
Li-Ching Hung and Cary Stacy Smith
Little research exists concerning whether a supervisor and supervisee’s individual preferences for a specific supervision style influences the supervisory process. By treating a supervisory style match as a mediating variable that influences the supervision outcome could open new avenues of theoretical investigation. Such information could be helpful for graduate counselor trainees with little experience with supervision. An enhanced understanding of the entire process could effectively enhance communication during each stage of the supervisory relationship.
