Intentional Supervision Through the Use of Video-tapes.
Therapy supervision has traditionally relied on the therapist’s self-report of their work with clients. Videotaping is gaining traction as a tool used in supervision to help therapists in training develop their clinical skills, and it is now an APA requirement for psychology internships. However, videotapes are still mainly used to support the supervisor’s role: identifying the developmental stage in the student’s training, ensuring patient’s safety, and providing global feedback about the therapist’s intervention skills. Video recordings of therapy sessions can be used in supervision and self-supervision to increase the therapist’s level of effectiveness with their patients by providing the opportunity for intentional, moment-to-moment assessment of the client’s level anxiety and use of coping mechanisms, therapist-client dynamics, and client’s response to interventions.
Therapists in training tend to take a passive role in their own learning. Many times, students do not know how to make the best out of their supervision sessions. Because of the lack of models of supervision that rely on the use of video recording, especially in psychoanalytic and psychodynamic training programs, supervisors are often at a loss as to how to make the best use of the videotapes their supervises bring in for review. Traditionally trained therapists did not use video as part of their own training, and in most cases, they do not use videos in their own therapy practice. As a result, video recordings in supervision tend to be underused.
