The chapter shows the importance of the therapeutic relationship and shows ethical issues. It also presents behavioral model of supervision, and discuss some special training issues. The chapter shows that the entire process of training and supervising behavior therapists needs to be examined from a coherent theoretical framework. It develops such a framework for training and supervision and to discuss the various procedures, pitfalls, and possible solutions to problems encountered.
