Abstract or Summary
  • The purpose of this dissertation was to gain an understanding of supervision in the counseling profession, as well as an understanding of the experiences of licensure supervisors. This was accomplished through qualitative metasynthesis of the research on supervision and the completion of a grounded theory exploration of licensure supervisors' experience of supervision. The qualitative metasynthesis consisted of seventeen studies, and identified the areas of supervision most frequently studied and those that have been least studied, it highlighted the most common qualitative methodologies used and revealed three overarching themes across the studies reviewed. The results set the foundation for the grounded theory examination of licensure supervisors' experience of supervision. The grounded theory looked at the experiences of nine expert licensure supervisors who were actively supervising. Two rounds of semistructured interviews were completed, audio recorded and transcribed. A member check was conducted by e-mail and follow-up interviews. Through the coding process, four categories emerged; supervisor professional development, motivation, personal and professional values and the licensure supervision process. The licensure supervision process developed as the central category because of its essential relationship to the licensure supervisors' experiences. Supervisor professional development, motivation and personal and professional values emerged as a contextual categories because they proved critical in fully understanding the licensure supervisors’ experience by informing and supporting the supervisor and the licensure supervision process. This study provides a qualitative descriptive view of how licensure supervisors' experience supervision. These findings are relevant to the counseling profession in general, academic program development, counselor educators and implication for future research.
