    • Abstract:
      This article presents the views of the authors on self care of the supervisors. They say that supervising is an onerous task that places immense psychological and emotional demands on the practitioner. The stresses mirror those of counseling--the person's working conditions, how the supervisee behaves, the emotional demands on the participants, and any disruptions or interruptions to the process. When supervisors work with practitioners who see large numbers of clients for short-term work, the pressure to cover each therapist's practice adequately becomes an added Stressor. Taking care of themselves therefore provides good role-modeling to supervise and enables supervision to remain reasonably healthy.
