Counseling self-efficacy in practicum students [electronic resource] : contributions of supervision / by Dawn C. Lorenz
- The purpose of this study was to assess how supervisory styles, supervisory working alliance, and supervisor behaviors impact on the development of counseling self-efficacy during the practicum experience. Participants completed instruments related to demographic characteristics, supervisory style (Supervisory Style Inventory-Trainee), supervisor working alliance (Supervisor Working Alliance Inventory-Trainee), supervisor behaviors (Modified-Clinical Supervision Questionnaire), and counseling self-efficacy (Counseling Self-Estimate Inventory). Using path type models and multiple regression, this study showed that supervision components as a group (i.e., supervisory styles, supervisory working alliance, supervisory behaviors) are predictive of counseling selfefficacy at mid-semester and the end of supervision. Use of repeated measures Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) revealed statistically significant increases in counseling selfefficacy throughout the course of practicum and that incremental increases (i.e., Time One to Time Two; Time Two to Time Three) were also statistically significant. Earlier studies on supervisory styles, supervisor working alliance, supervisor behaviors, and counseling self-efficacy are discussed as well as implications for training and supervision. Future research recommendations on supervision, counseling self-efficacy, and supervision models are also provided.
