Chapter 14

Integrative Supervision in Action
We have discussed an entry-level model of integrative supervision and a foundation for you to get started in evolving you own integrative approach. We want this to be another more personal chapter, in which Craig is going to illustrate the application of a fully developed integrative model. He tells you two supervision stories with quite different outcomes. The first example also illustrates aspects of the developmental model that we discussed in Chapter 5. Here we use a four phase model that represents a trainee's progression along the training continuum:
1. The introductory phase: Assessing the trainee's strengths and weakness in the context of getting to know one another.
2. The early phase: Operationalizing systemic concepts in the therapy room.
3. The middle phase: Learning to read the "live history" and presence of the system.
4. The final phase: Conceptualizing and enacting family change.

The Case of the Supervisor Being Seduced by the Trainee's Cognitive Prowess

This is one of those training cases where you look back and wonder why you ever agreed to supervise a particular therapist. You will have these experiences, too. I tend to conduct fairly exhaustive screening interviews before committing to a course of supervision, and I had done that with this therapist. Even in writing this example, I still wonder, "How could I have missed, or simply ignored, the red flags?"
