Abstract

Supervision is invaluable to a psychotherapist-in-training, aiding the developing clinician in consolidating skills, thinking ethically, and developing autonomy. Although many supervisory duties can be applied across treatment modality, there are specific variations of these duties that supervisors of couples therapy cases must consider. These include assuring trainees' understanding of ethical issues of fidelity and confidentiality related to both partners in the client dyad; evaluating trainees' competence to treat two clients simultaneously and to utilize couples-specific interventions; assessing how trainees' personal beliefs such as those related to religion, reproduction, and culture may influence views of norms within a romantic relationship; and tailoring supervisory techniques and processes to best address couples treatment.
