Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Evaluation of psychotherapy trainees under the two situations of individual and group supervision is examined. Ss were 24 individual and six group supervisors of 49 psychotherapy trainees (12 male, 37 female) of the Psychology Graduate School of Tel-Aviv University. A 32-item questionnaire was individually administered to all 30 Ss. It was factor analyzed separately for individual and group situations and a Varimax rotation performed. Four factors emerged for each situation and high loaded items were distributed across four relevant constructs; being with, doing to, relationship, and criteria. Individual supervision clearly relates to the “being with” construct and there is a communality between this and evaluation items forming a criteria construct. The group supervisor situation emphasizes social and interactional characteristics. It would seem that supervisor perception of students is at least partly molded by the situational context of individual and group supervision. These two different training situations generate different evaluation of the same students.
