The Tripartite Model of Supervision for Rehabilitation Counselors
Journal of Applied Rehabilitation Counseling
Supervisors working in rehabilitation agencies are faced with the complex task of attending to the needs of their professional staff, and meeting the needs of their organization. This article introduces the Tripartite Model of Supervision, which delineates the supervisory functions of administrative oversight, professional development, and clinical supervision. The overlap of these functions, including quality assurance, strategic leadership, transformational learning, and the supervisory working alliance are also discussed. It is posited that the implementation of this model will result in a movement to a more supportive and developmental focused supervisory process within rehabilitation agencies.
