Research shows us that graduate students receive supervision from counselors who did not learn supervision models (DeKruyf & Pehrrson, 2011). The current state of supervision preparation of school counselors is a significant concern (Franklin, 2015).
The researcher crafted two studies with each utilizing a Delphi method with different populations of experts. The goal of each Delphi Study was to ascertain the components that school counseling departments should include in their site supervisor preparation. Included in the first manuscript is a review of the literature and a Delphi study that the researcher conducted with school counseling site supervisors to ascertain areas to include in site supervisor preparation. The second manuscript is a review of the literature and a Delphi study that the researcher conducted with counselor educators to identify which components to include in site supervisor preparation. School counseling education departments can use this dissertation as guidance when structuring site supervisor preparation modules.
