13 Supervision Model: Littrell, Lee-Bordon & Lorenz Stage 2 ▫ The therapeutic counseling component is added - emphasis on interpersonal skills. ▫ The teaching component is added - emphasis on instruction. 13 © Rachael Cresci, LCSW

14 Supervision Model: Littrell, Lee-Bordon & Lorenz Stage 3 ▫ As the supervisee matures. ▫ The instructor consultation is more exploratory and reflective. ▫ Less damage control ▫ The supervisee becomes more confident 14 © Rachael Cresci, LCSW

15 Supervision Model: Littrell, Lee-Bordon & Lorenz Stage 4 ▫ The supervisee progresses to independence - self-supervision and takes more responsibility for their own learning process. ▫ The supervisor becomes more of a consultant. 15 © Rachael Cresci, LCSW

16 Psychoanalytic Supervisor Initial Stage: ▫ Concerned with both the developmental stages of the client and the supervisee. ▫ Work towards understanding the defense mechanisms of the supervisee Middle Stage: ▫ Supervisee might avoid certain topics ▫ Transference Late Stage: ▫ Supervisor works through the resistance ▫ Supervisee gains a better sense of mastery 16 © Rachael Cresci, LCSW

17 Parallel Process  Stemming from transference and projection.  Supervisee and their client may be dealing with the same issues  Supervisee brings feelings and issues experienced with clients into the supervisor/supervisee relationship  Supervisor needs to address the parallel process as it occurs if they believe the supervisee has sufficiently advanced skills. 17 © Rachael Cresci, LCSW
