Training Counselors to be Consumers of Supervision
Diane L. Parfitt, Devika Dibya Choudhuri, and Irene Mass Ametrano
Most states require that professional counselors work under supervision before they receive a full license to practice, yet our data indicate that supervisees often don’t receive training in how to select an effective supervisor. For those who do receive training, topics of importance are often omitted. We present these data, along with training module topics for educating counselors about the process of selecting a supervisor.
