7 Other Supervision Tips  Remember the developmental level of your supervisee. Initial supervision sessions are likely to be from the teacher and counselor role.  Any part of the school counseling experience is subject to supervision-not just clinical interactions.  Still, a focus on basic skills development is a key component of practicum.  As students progress through the year, you are likely to supervise more from the counselor and consultant role, and focus more on areas of personalization, professional development, and conceptualization.  Other tips, best practices, words of wisdom?????
