Counselor development can be viewed as an evolutionary process whereby advancements in learning and skill development occur across time. A number of empirically studied developmental models of supervision have demonstrated the significance of organizing supervision around the assessment of one’s professional development relative to performance standards. A common theme in one’s development as a clinician is how the integration of one’s professional self and personal self-progress across time. This process starts at the beginning stage of counselor development where one may question their level of skills and expertise in a quest for professional success and progress to where one is able to practice independently with a high level of self-efficacy in more of a collegial relationship with their supervisor. This webinar will explore three levels of counselor development while integrating characteristics of the Integrated Developmental Model of supervision. Included is the evolution of supervisee developmental criteria along with supervisory approaches that typically evolve over time to best meet the counselor’s level of development.

Learning Objectives
  • Explore three levels of stages of supervisee development.
  • Identify appropriate stage-wise interventions in supervision.
  • Discuss typical characteristics of each stage.
  • Explain the significance of the evolving supervisory relationship.
