Professionalism as a Competency– Professionalism in Communication

Much has been written about the qualities of a good supervisor, the purpose of supervision, how supervision can be conceptualized, and addressing the potential needs of the trainee based on their developmental levels (e.g., beginning trainee; Bernard & Goodyear, 1992; Bradley & Ladany, 2001), Yet, there is little attention given to addressing the practicalities of how trainees can get the most out of supervision at their practicum or internship.

Fears, a lack of knowledge about the supervisory process, the evaluative component and power differentials can create anxieties in trainees, resulting in trainees’ inability in getting what they need from supervision. Supervision is a critical component of clinical training. Due to its important role in the personal and professional development of supervisees, it is imperative that supervisees develop a comprehensive understanding of the process of supervision.
This presentation will focus on providing supervisors a conceptual framework for socializing and developing professional competency in supervision.
