The Clinical Education and Supervisory Process in Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology
Elizabeth S. McCrea, Judith A. Brasseur
As with the actual practices of speech-language pathologists and audiologists, clinical education and supervision practices work best when they are grounded not only in concept and theory but also in research. Designed to act as a complete guide to both the theory and the research, The Clinical Education and Supervisory Process in Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology provides the most up-to-date information on these crucial topics. The book explores clinical education and supervision across five unique constituent groups: clinical educators of graduate students, preceptors of audiology externs, mentors of clinical fellows, supervisors of support personnel, and supervisors of professionals transitioning between work settings. It also includes the latest information on certification and accreditation requirements for preparation in supervision. Other topics include: Foundations: Anderson’s Continuum of Supervision; Components of the Process; Expectations for Supervision; Practical Research in Supervision; Literature from other Disciplines; Obtaining Feedback About the Supervisory Process; The Ethics of Clinical Education and Supervision; Supervisor Self-Study and Accountability and Interprofessional Education and Practice in Clinical Education and Supervision. Chapter appendices add numerous ancillary materials, allowing readers to easily adopt the most successful processes and strategies the research has revealed. Sample scripts of supervisory conferences, self-assessment tools, action plan tools, and analysis systems can all be found inside.
