Abstract or Summary
  • The purpose of this study was to determine the nature and process of clinical supervision via the Internet as experienced by participating supervisees. The subjects of this study were four students in a masters level internship course in counseling at Oregon State University. The course was a pass/no pass counseling internship placement which included an Internet-based clinical supervision component. The qualitative design used in this study was based on a Constant Comparative Methodology using coding categories developed manually and through the use of the QSR NUDIST 3.0 Qualitative Data Analysis Software. This design focused on the collection of textual material from participants engaged in distance clinical supervision. This textual material and subsequent analysis served to help create an emergent theory of distance clinical supervision. Participants evidenced a motivation to participate in the distance supervision experience and advanced not only clinical skill use but also were challenged with the technological aspects of course participation. Findings suggest that the attitudes, prior experiences, and social expectations influenced participant meaning-making and subsequent self-construction of their ideal learning environment. In addition, participants' interest in technology and the convenience of the distance venue provided an impetus toward autonomous functioning in spite of supervisee dependency. This struggle appeared consistent with the theoretical constructs of the developmental models of supervisee process. As supported by Stoltenberg's developmental model of supervisee development, more advanced supervisees perform more autonomously. In this distance supervisory environment, supervisees were offered additional opportunities to operate autonomously which may impact overall supervisee development. This research may have implications for the continued development of the distance supervision method especially in experiential courses in the training of counselors. Recommendations and cautions are offered for the further development of distance supervision courses as well as the need for further research to substantiate the posited theoretical foundations.
