Abstract

Licensed psychologists from 1 midwestern state were surveyed to assess the nature of clinical supervision for experienced practitioners. Data were collected concerning type, frequency, and content of supervision; supervisor goals, techniques, assessment methods, and roles; and most and least helpful aspects of supervision. There were few significant differences in supervision as a function of supervisee experience, gender, or degree (MA vs. PhD), or supervisor gender. The supervisees generally appeared to have autonomous relationships with supervisors who were clinically skilled and highly supportive. Several ethical concerns regarding supervisee informed consent, supervisor accountability, and gender-role stereotyping are discussed, and recommendations for additional research are made.
