The authors questioned residents and supervisors at a large clinic about
their attitudes and experiences regarding clinical supervision. Half of the
residents then videotaped one of their psychotherapy sessions and presented
the tape in their next supervisory session. The procedure had little effect
on patients, was anxiety-provoking for the residents, and had some
diagnostic benefit for the supervisors. After the taping, the residents'
views about taping were less positive than before the taping, but the
supervisors' views did not change significantly.
