Collaboration with Dr. Derek Milne

I have been working with a British psychologist, Derek Milne, examining the effects of implementing an evidence-based supervision model in a series of pilot studies. I was trained in the enhanced supervision model by having audio recordings of my weekly supervision rated on a process evaluation scale (SAGE) developed with Dr. Milne and receiving weekly feedback on improving the process of supervision.

My current research interests include improving clinical supervision and training using an evidence-based supervision model. Although theoretically positioned at the heart of clinical training, empirical research on clinical supervision continues to be sadly neglected. Current accounts of supervision rely heavily on a psychotherapy-based model.
