Evaluation in SupervisionEvaluation in supervision may create anxiety in the supervisor,
supervisee, or both. There are many strategies for reducing anxiety
related to evaluating a supervisee. Supervisors must establish clear
goals from the start. Engaging the supervisee in the process by having
the supervisee simultaneously conduct a self-evaluation is also
helpful.The supervisor and supervisee can establish a supervision schedule
and identify specific dates and times for evaluation. During
evaluations, supervisors need to focus on behavior rather than
personality when providing feedback to supervisees. Focusing on what can
be changed and providing specific ideas for professional improvement
will motivate supervisees and will be the most productive approach. This week, you prepare for the in-residence component of this
course. In previous weeks, you have read a variety of resources on
supervision and evaluation in supervision. As you reflect on the
readings, consider which topics generate strong opinions in you or
spark your interest to learn more. Why do those resources elicit such a
response? For this Discussion, review this week’s Learning Resources. Select
two topics from the readings about which you have strong opinions or an
interest in learning more.Post by Day 4 a brief description
of at least two topics from the readings on evaluation in supervision
about which you have strong opinions and/or strong interest in learning
more during the in-residence component, and explain why. Be sure to support your post with specific references to the Learning Resources.Reference:ReadingsKerl, S. B., Garcia, J. L., McCullough, C. S., & Maxwell, M.
