stage begins the task planning and implementation sequence (TPIS), covered
in the previous chapters. After implementation of contracted tasks, the supervisee and supervisor enter into a collaborative appraisal of how well the tasks
were completed. This generally follows the social stage, toward the start of each
supervision meeting. Task review and the TPIS sequence continue throughout
the supervisory encounter after the completion of the first contract.

content from supervision to practice, promoting flow of learning from one
supervision meeting to the next, and providing a mechanism for systematic
