Course Description: This course is based upon material published by the American Counseling Association and is available as an open access article.

Although triadic supervision has been the subject of little empirical research, perspectives of supervisors in this form of supervision have received even less attention. This qualitative study examined 6 doctoral student supervisors’ experiences of triadic supervision and the demands it placed on them in their role as supervisors. Data collection involved use of in-depth, open-ended interviews, and a whole-text analysis re­sulted in 2 major categories. These categories address various ways in which triadic supervision increases or decreases the demands placed on the supervisor. Implications of the findings for supervisory practices and future research are also addressed.

This course on triadic supervision is designed for social workers, professional counselors, psychologists, and substance abuse counselors, who do clinical work.  This course is appropriate for beginning, intermediate and advanced level practitioners who wish to develop their understanding of triadic supervision. The course material includes a literature review of a qualitative study that examined how triadic supervision and the demands it placed on supervisors. It may also be useful for licensed clinicians who require clinical continuing education courses for license renewal.  

The course is based on a journal article which includes research.  It contains statistical analysis and data that some clinicians enjoy reading and others do not.  A major benefit of reading research based articles for continuing education is they provide practitioners with the latest findings in their field.
