Requirements

1. Supervision of master’s level supervisees: Students in G763 are
expected to conduct individual supervision with their supervisees
once per week (one hour for each supervision session). Doctoral
students are responsible for scheduling weekly sessions, taping the
sessions, and reviewing supervisees’ counseling performance.

2. Each supervision session must be documented in a log, which the
supervisor must bring to every class meeting. Logs are due upon
request of instructor.

3. Master’s students’ counselor evaluations: At both mid-semester and
at the end of the semester, supervisors are expected to provide
written feedback to their supervisees related to strengths and growth
edges. These evaluations will be given to the supervisee, the
appropriate instructor of G524 and the instructor of G763.

4. Supervision Taping: All students are required to either video or
audio tape each supervision session. It is incumbent on the
supervisor to explain the purpose of taping, explain the limitations
of confidentiality and obtain verbal consent for taping from the
supervisee. All supervisees must tape.

5. Supervision Case Presentation: Each G763 student will be required
to formally discuss one supervision case during seminar. The
presentation should include videotape from at least two supervision
sessions. The presentation outline is appended.

Grading:
Grades will be assigned based on the G763 student’s ability to
analyze and conceptualize supervisory issues, level of professional
supervision performance, quality of participation and written
requirements.
