Conceptualizing and validating a measure of student trust
This process used to be informal and occurred essentially through osmosis.
Osmosis refers to the supervisor simply doing either what had been done to him or her as a supervisee or doing something different to prevent harm.
We now realize the need for a formal process as the fields have evolved and supervision has become a core competency in mental health.
Supervision requires the supervisor to assess and evaluate levels of supervisee readiness, competence, and affect, reflect upon these in the supervisor oneself, and to weave a tapestry of thought and feeling which translates into effective clinical intervention.
There is evidence that there are few differences in concepts, attitudes, or practice between psychologists and other mental health professionals (Kavanagh, Spence, Strong, Wilson, Sturk, & Crow, 2003).
Or that’s what many men who have lost in love think.
While the first flush of excited love may flicker out for men, it never does for women.
While the role of supervisor is weighty, it is also replete with potential for growth, development, inquiry, creativity, and excitement.
Until the last decade, remarkably little attention was devoted to the practice of supervision.
