Interns are supervised both by a professor (faculty supervisor) and a staff member at the internship site (agency supervisor). These supervisors should be concerned foremost with the professional and personal development of the student. Thus, it is essential for the intern to understand the supervisory process and to be able to determine the extent and type of supervision needed from three sources: the faculty supervisor, the agency supervisor, and coworkers. It is very important to have smooth and effective communication between intern and faculty and agency supervisors. In field situations, it is important that interns receive and transmit information and understand what is going on. During an internship, agency supervisors who are good communicators use a technique that is often referred to as coaching. A good coach will not only direct an intern, but will explain the legal, ethical, and operational ramifications of what is occurring. At the end of this chapter, you will be asked a series of questions on your views of supervision and how you have handled supervision from your previous academic or work experiences.
