In-Person and Computer-Mediated Distance Group Supervision: A Case Study
A. Stephen Lenz, Marvarene Oliver, and Kaye W. Nelson
among students concurrently receiving either in-person or distance clinical group supervision. Specifically, we implemented a mixed method single-case research design to identify and explore trends and perceptions of general experience with a hybrid supervision course (i.e., distance and in-person participation). We explored the following research questions:
1.) What are the differences in perceived rapport between students receiving group supervision in-person when compared to a student participating using a distance supervision medium?
2.) What are the differences in perceived client focus between students receiving group supervision in-person when compared to a student participating using a distance supervision medium?
3.) How do students perceive the overall experience of participating in a hybrid group supervision strategy that combines both in-person and distance supervision strategies?
