Beginning and expert supervisors’ descriptions of effective and less effective supervision
In this study, we explored beginning, expert academic, and expert sitesupervisors’ descriptions of effective and less effective supervision sessions via a mixed-methods design. Content analysis revealed eight themes of supervisors’ descriptions (e.g., supervisee’s traits and experience, supervisor’s self-awareness/self-reflectivity on similarities and differences, supervisory relationship). Chi-square analysis yielded frequency differences among effectiveness categories (i.e., effective, less effective) and supervisor profiles (i.e., beginning, expert academic, and expert site). We discuss the results and provide research, practice, and training implications.
