How to Become an Optimal Supervisor

I believe that using a developmental approach that is cyclical would allow supervisors to better assess the supervisee’s skills and determine if their skills are appropriate for their level of training. Using a developmental model is also important because research has found that supervisee’s want different things from supervision based on where they are in their professional development….
