The fact that certain psychological processes only function in particular situations can have a dual significance.

He looks awfully serious, I think. Maybe in his early thirties. This is his first placement; I remember when I first started seeing clients, in my first internship, when I was I felt so scared!
I knew I didn't know anything, although I would never admit it to my supervisor. I hope Daniel's in therapy; and, unfortunately, the Counseling Center cannot require therapy for its interns. Learning to be a therapist is really painful at times. I think the closest model is that of initiation. If it feels excruciating, and that every bone is broken, and every part of your psyche activated, then you will probably end up being a good therapist. If you just cruise through, you won't ever be able to go to the depths with your clients.
I bet he doesn't have a clue what he is in for!
- Dual relationship

There is a resonance in the field between supervisee and supervisor, a 'parallel process' that occurs in supervision, so I wanted to model for Daniel the feeling of an initial session, as he would soon be starting to see clients. Initial sessions can be problematic in supervision, as there is a lot of ground to cover regarding responsibilities, law and ethics, paperwork, things to review, as well as the most important part, which is beginning to get a sense of the person. In some ways this is akin to an initial therapy session, particularly in a clinic setting where there are intake forms, releases, notification of intern status, etc.
In reviewing the literature from the fields of social work, psychology, and marriage and family therapy, Kaiser identified four consistently cited issues: The transference occurs when the counselor recreates the presenting problem and emotions of the therapeutic relationship within the supervisory relationship.
Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT)
Countertransference occurs when the supervisor responds to the counselor in the same manner that the counselor responds to the client. Thus, the supervisory interaction replays, or is parallel with, the counseling interaction. ERIC Digest ED I also wanted Daniel to get a sense of who I was, as we would be spending one hour a week for the next nine months together, unless something drastic happened.
Whenever I consider this, my thoughts go to the other nine months in our lives, the time in the uterus. My job was perhaps like that of the mother, to create the 'free and protected place' as Dora Kalff used to say, for a therapist to develop. There are many ways in which therapists and supervisors err with regard to boundaries. One way to guard against this is to imagine that the therapeutic container is "sacred space", a temenos or 'free and protected' place. Conceptualize psychotherapy and supervision as a 'safe harbor' in which competent help is given in a clear and respectful manner, a place where the psyche of the client is honored above all.
Anything that interferes with this is unethical and possibly illegal. That includes most contact outside of the therapeutic hour, including having coffee or lunch with a client or supervisee, bartering with a client for supervision or therapy in exchange for services or products, working with a client in more than one capacity, and most certainly, having a sexual relationship with a client. My first supervisor was brutal; supervision with him was the opposite of the 'free and protected' place.
When I reported to him after my first session as an intern, he told me that it was the "worst session he had ever supervised. Teaching, doing therapy and supervision are quite different at times! The person who creates the unconditional safe space of therapy may in fact be a lousy supervisor, unwilling to confront the supervisee. By the same token, the professor with many publications, who is his or her own harshest critic, may also be a poor supervisor. Such was the case with Dr. His blunt style and high expectations were a poor match for a feeling type, brand new baby therapist.
I never wanted to do that to anyone I supervised. Years later I realized that those who have been initiated cruelly will tend to be cruel in their initiation of others. It is the 'wounded who wound', unless they find within themselves the archetype of the wounded healer. Having been hurt by my first supervisor, I knew to be careful, to not repeat history.
In fact, I tell my students and interns "It is a 'practice' that we do, not a perfect! I knew that if I had been interviewing him to be my intern rather than him being assigned to me by the counseling center that I could not ask his age, marital status, ethnic background, whether he has children, his religion, whether he has any disabilities or health problems, etc. In fact, a supervisor cannot even ask if an intern or supervisee is in therapy!!! I always notice much like in a therapy session at what point the intern trusts me enough self disclose about who he or she is.
Daniel didn't tell me much about himself, other than that he felt quite ready to see clients. I asked him what part of seeing clients excited him, and he responded that actually he was not very excited about seeing children, that this placement had been his second choice.
He had applied to a Psychoanalytic Center, but they turned him down, saying he needed experience before he could be accepted there. Just what I need! A person who doesn't want to be here! But then I got a little bingo in my brain, and realized in some ways this was perfect, because many of the children and adolescents Daniel would be seeing would not want to go to therapy; but rather it was imposed on them from outside sources: So, I asked Daniel how it felt to be here, when he really didn't want to be here.
I knew I had to be careful here, as I didn't want to cross the boundary between supervisor and therapist. I tried the old open-ended question, and Daniel stammered a bit, and was clearly uncomfortable with my question about how he felt. It seemed that, so far, in this initial session, that I was doing a lousy job of establishing rapport with Daniel.
Clinical Supervision I: A Supervisor's Journal
I reminded myself to trust that when and if I needed to know more, it would be revealed. But I do hope whatever ambivalence he has about being here has been worked through in therapy. This is an issue in supervision that comes up again and again; where is the line between supervision and therapy?
How much does a supervisor need to know about an intern in order to be an effective supervisor? So, I tried again. It stated that he was 33 years old, had graduated with honors, from a very prestigious school, with a major in electrical engineering.
His job experience had been in the field of computers, and he had entered Psychology graduate school one year ago. There were references listed, all in his former field. I had no idea how he had gotten from computers to psychology.
I was wary, however, in the process of what had occurred. Not red flag alarmed; more like a yellow warning sign. The Interactive Field Here I fell back on my trusting the process. By and large, whatever needs to be revealed, will be revealed. If Daniel's issues regarding changing fields were to become a factor in his work, I trusted that I would know about them when I needed to. I also tuned into my own process as Daniel and I were talking, and realized all my images were about my own scientific and technical ineptness.
I know that I am what is considered to be a 'feeling type', and Daniel was certainly presenting like a 'thinking' type. This would explain the blank expression he had when I asked how he felt about being here. So, taking a deep breath, I tried a different tactic. Time and time again, when I reflexively asked him how he felt, he drew a blank. When I asked about the exact same issue, but instead remembered to ask him what he thought, then he would address the issue at hand.
This is a type of diversity, I feel, that often is overlooked. Instead, we therefore a report a single-predictor nonpartial model for every predictor of interest in each case a Bayesian mixed-effects model and b investigate the unique contribution of each predictor using model comparison, specifically, the method recommended by Barr et al. Our perhaps-unusual decision to combine Bayesian and frequentist methods is discussed further below. Another statistical shortcoming of the previous studies is that they did not take a consistent approach to either model building or significance testing.
In some cases, simultaneous regression models were used; in others, predictors were entered in a theoretically-determined order, either individually or in batches. In some cases, p values for individual predictors were taken directly from the model summary table i.
In the present series of reanalyses, we use a consistent approach. First, for each single-predictor nonpartial analysis, we report a Bayesian mixed-effects model. The advantage of a Bayesian approach is that it generates PMCMC values and credible intervals that — unlike frequentist p values and confidence intervals — each yield an intuitive interpretation, and eschew arbitrary cut-offs e. Bayesian mixed-effects models work by generating, for each fixed effect, a sample of plausible mean Beta values on the basis of a the observed values and b the specified distribution: This prior was chosen to be conservative, on the basis that an increase of one SD for any single predictor all were scaled into SD units is likely to result in a change of considerably less than 1 point on the 5-point grammaticality judgment scale.
For example, in the study of Ambridge, Pine, Rowland and Young — the first to use this scale — the mean difference between ratings for errors with high and low frequency verbs e. The PMCMC value for a particular fixed effect is simply the proportion of samples that have values of zero or lower or, for negative effects, zero or higher. Thus, the PMCMC value yields an intuitive interpretation one that is often incorrectly ascribed to frequentist p values; e.
Similarly, Bayesian credible intervals have a more straightforward interpretation than their frequentist equivalent confidence intervals: The probability that the true value of the mean lies within the credible interval is 0. That said, it is important to note that, with a relatively uninformative prior — such as that used here — Bayesian and frequentist analyses generally arrive at similar conclusions.
The single-predictor models described above cannot, of course, tell us whether or not one predictor e. In principle, this question could be investigated by means of simultaneous regression models.
For the present analyses, however, the high degree of collinearity between predictors particularly preemption and entrenchment would render such models essentially uninterpretable. We therefore followed the model-comparison approach recommended by Barr, Levy, Scheepers and Tilyusing frequentist models implement in lme4.
Although, for the reasons outlined above, we would have preferred to use Bayesian models, this proved to be computationally infeasible, since the model-comparison procedure leave-one-out validation requires the calculation of several thousand models for each dataset. A final statistical shortcoming is that all previous studies except Ambridge et al.
In a series of simulation studies, Barr et al. However, there is some debate in the literature as to how to determine which slope structure to use: Another problem with the approach advocated by Barr et al.
This necessitates a by-hand simplification process that is not only overly laborious the present analyses required separate lme4 modelsbut results in very different model structures for similar datasets e. As a compromise that allows for a uniform approach across all frequentist models, we therefore decided on a structure that models random effects on the intercept and all slopes, but not correlations between them convergence-failures is not a problem for the single-predictor Bayesian models.
Problems of corpus size A final problem is specific to the locative study of Ambridge et al. Consequently, many verbs were not attested in either of the locative construction salthough they are attested when a larger corpus is usedwhich puts the preemption predictor at a distinct disadvantage as compared with entrenchment.
Gender Issues in Psychology
We address this problem by using counts from the million word BNC. The present study In summary, the main goal of the present study is to reanalyze the acceptability judgment data from previous studies of overgeneralization errors involving locatives Ambridge et al.
The statistical analyses use 4 Bayesian single-predictor models and frequentist model comparison with maximal and near-maximal random structure respectively5 non-residualized predictor variables and 6 both raw and difference-score outcome variables. Locatives Ambridge et al, For locatives, an overgeneralization error occurs when a verb that is grammatical in only the figure-locative construction e.
An error also occurs when — vice versa — a verb that is grammatical in only the ground-locative e. Thus, for errors involving the ground-locative construction e.
Consequently, the prediction of the preemption hypothesis tested by Ambridge et al was of a negative correlation between the acceptability of errors relative to grammatical uses, since difference scores were used and the frequency of the relevant verb in the opposite locative construction.
The prediction of the entrenchment hypothesis tested in this previous study was of a negative correlation between the acceptability of errors relative to grammatical uses, since difference scores were used and overall verb frequency including uses of, for example, pour in neither construction; e. Note that, throughout this paper, when we refer to semantics or semantic predictors, we are talking about semantic properties rated at the verb level.
That said, it is important to bear in mind that the relevant verb-level semantic properties and hence those rated are delineated by the semantics of the constructions under investigation. Like the authors of the original studies, we are agnostic as to where these verb-level semantic ratings originally come from. Alternatively or additionally they could be learned by means of surface-level distributional analysis e. Fewer adults than children were required because every adult completed every test trial, with each child completing only a subset of One important difference between the present reanalysis and the original study of Ambridge et al.
