Abstract

This study empirically examined underlying dimensions from actual supervisory statements taken from interventions occurring during live supervision of counseling interviews. Twenty-seven supervisor interventions were identified and transcribed from the 3rd and 4th counseling sessions of 16 counseling dyads. Twenty-six judges sorted and rated these transcribed interventions. Multidimensional scaling revealed 6 dimensions that characterized the supervisor interventions. The dimensions were interpreted as (a) Directing-Instructing Versus Deepening, (b) Cognitive Clarification Versus Emotional Encouragement, (c) Confronting Versus Encouraging the Client, (d) Didactic-Distant Versus Emotionally Involved, (e) Joining With Versus Challenging the Trainee, and (f) Providing Direction Versus Resignation. The findings are discussed in relation to the supervision literature.
