Participating in Supervision in School Psychology: A National Survey of Practices and Training

pp. 63—80

The results of a national survey (n = 331) examining the training and involvement of school psychologists in supervision indicate that one-quarter of the sample had some graduate coursework or training in supervision. Only 11.2% of the sample received this training in school psychology programs. Training typically came after graduate work was completed and infrequently included the types of training experiences considered essential for skill building. Compared to the number actually involved in supervision, more school psychologists wanted to be supervised and supervise others. Results suggest that there is a large pool of potential supervisors meeting NASP qualifications to draw from within the school psychology profession. Additional efforts directed toward securing appropriate supervision training seem warranted.
