CECP Master's Degrees in Counseling Program

Welcome to the Supervisor Resources Page!

First, our department would like to offer our sincere thanks to you for sharing your time and skills with our students. Our training program would not be possible without you! On this page we have compiled information that we hope you will find helpful as you supervise our master’s level students.

Supervisor Resources

What is supervision?

Supervision is an intervention provided by a more senior member of a profession to a more junior member or members of that same profession. The supervision relationship is:

  • Evaluative
  • Extends over time
  • Enhances professional competency
  • Monitors quality of professional services offered
  • Serves as a gate-keeper for those who enter the profession                   

(Bernard & Goodyear, 2009)

We ask that you view our Supervisor Resources Module to review basic principles of effective supervision, as well as details about our program. In this module you will learn more about our master’s program student learning outcomes, as well practicum and internship requirements

Research on Supervision

Dr. Alan Burkard, Director of Training of Marquette’s Counseling Psychology Doctoral Program, compiled a review of research findings on the effectiveness of supervision.

Smith (2009) has created A Brief Summary of Supervision Models which gives an outline of psychotherapy-based, developmental, and integrative models of supervision.

Campbell’s (2000) list of Effective Supervisory Behaviors is also a useful resource.

Colloquia Schedule

Each academic year, the Counselor Education and Counseling Psychology Department provides a series of colloquia meant to educate students, faculty, and interested professionals in the community on certain aspects of clinical practice. We bring in practitioners and researchers who have expertise and experience in counseling. The presentations generally take place 2-3 times a semester on Wednesdays from 12:00-1:00pm, on Marquette’s campus at Alumni Memorial Union – Room 227. The Marquette University CECP Department is approved to offer continuing education credits to counselors through NBCC, and to Wisconsin psychologists through the WI DRL.
