Supervision was perhaps my weakest competency going into the doctoral process and remains a competency I still need to develop more. However, it was perhaps one of the more rewarding competencies throughout my experiences. There is something exciting and special about connecting with a supervisee and helping them grow in their counseling skills. Supervision is like teaching, however, it can be very personal and tailored to each individual. I see supervision through a developmental model. Understanding each supervisee through where they are developmentally allows me to focus on which skill to develop and not expect them to be an expert in all of them. This process was modeled for me through my professors and their example will allow me to springboard into my own work.
An area of strength for this competency is my passion for each student and my ability to see critically into their work as counselors. While I struggled to see what knowledge I had to contribute to a supervisee, through my internship and work with students, I began to see my ability to speak into their work and help them focus on the core counseling skills. There are very few things as rewarding as hearing your input making a difference in the development of a new counselor who has the ability to impact so many clients.
Perhaps the greatest need for growth in this area is experience. While my experience centers in the educational realm, I want to begin to supervise residents for licensure as well. This thought is a heavy one as a supervisor is taking on the responsibility of the supervisee as well as being a gatekeeper for the counseling field. Continual learning and growing through being a part of professional organizations will remain top priorities in this competency moving forward.
Supervision could be associated with how Jesus interacted with His disciples. Christ’s example to us is a model for me in my work with supervisees. Loving them, encouraging them, and challenging them to be all God created them to be all come from my new life in Christ.
