Supervision is an important part of the education, training, and development of a professional counselor. I have adapted Littrell, Lee-Borden, and Lorenz Model (1979) supervision model to provide a practical approach that fit my style of supervision. This model matches the supervisor's behavior to the developmental needs of the supervisee. The four stages to this model include:
Methods and Modalities
of Supervisee Training
Individual weekly supervision sessions
Group supervision, when appropriate
Feedback and guidance on counseling techniques, application of theories, differential diagnosis, and ethics
Review of case notes and other documentation and/or recorded client sessions, as feasible and appropriate.
