Clinical supervision is an international phenomenon, but beyond Western perspectives that have dominated the published research on the subject, national, cultural, and regional variants have not been explored. In the interest of expanding the international frame, we joined international supervision experts from some less studied countries (China, Guatemala, Mexico, South Korea, Turkey, the United Arab Emirates, and the United States) to lay groundwork for discussion and reciprocal learning on culture, mores, and clinical supervision practice. The article is derived from a study by Falender and colleagues (2021).

When I ask prospective clients how they felt about prior therapy, the most common account is of a therapist whom they regarded as a kind, non-judgmental listener, but not much else. They wonder if they were properly challenged, if there could have been more guidance, or […]

Introduction Clinical supervision comes in many different shapes and sizes. However, clinical supervision remains, at its core, a professional relationship in which the supervisor provides instruction and guidance in order to further develop the supervisee’s knowledge, skills, and attitudes in clinical practice (Falender & Shafranske, 2004; Falender & Shafranske, 2014).

The role of a psychotherapist departs from other helping […]

Supervision will be introduced to students in many graduate cohorts as an aspect of their training they will both enjoy and endure. Framing it this way inherently leads students to start to question what they want in a supervisor. Some will think of the worst and ponder what it would be like to have a […]

Introduction Perceived safety in the supervisor-supervisee relationship can influence the level of supervisee self-disclosure (e.g., of mistakes, countertransference, or personal factors such as self-care; Gunn & Pistole, 2012), as well as supervisee outcomes (e.g., self-awareness and self-confidence in session with clients; Johnston & Milne, 2012; Wheeler & Richards, 2007). The development of safety in this […]
