Clinical supervision is a distinct professional competency for psychologists. Supervision of supervision (SOS) is a process in which supervisors are trained and supported in the provision of clinical supervision through modeling and experiential practice. In this presentation, several models of supervision will be described and hybrid models articulated.

Learning Objectives

Participants will be able to:

  • Describe two aspects of supervision of supervision (SOS) that occur across models.
  • Outline one process that is essential to the provision of SOS.
  • Identify one process of SOS that enhances training in reflective processes and multicultural identities.
