Title:
A qualitative investigation of trainee counsellors' experience of supervision and its boundary with the clinical seminar
Authors:
Robertson, Mary Ann
Abstract:
This small-scale study examines, in depth, seven trainee counsellors' experiences of two components of their training - supervision and the clinical seminar - and explores how they manage the potentially problematic boundary between the two. An overview of the literature reveals that much has been written about the purpose and experience of supervision, but very little about the clinical seminar. Using data from semi-structured interviews and basing the methodology on the principles of grounded theory, this research allows the reported experience of trainees to show something of the quality of the training experience. Data analysis suggests that trainee cousnellors' initial experience of supervision is supported by their use of the clinical seminar and that the negotiation of the boundary between the two does not generate significant difficulty or tension. The use of the two spaces is complementary. Trainees are aware that they are operating as counsellors in supervision but as students in the clinical seminar.
