Need for a New Framework for Supervision of Counsellors in the Indian Context: A Review

Vinod Victor

Abstract: Counselling and Supervision are trying to keep pace with their competency-based theoretical models. Supervision is an essential aspect of continuing professional development. Supervisors in various settings are tasked with carefully monitoring the services provided by counsellors in an effort to seek assurance that service delivery maximizes each treatment opportunity. The role of the supervisor must expand and many find themselves ill-equipped to deal with the many demands being placed on them. While the use of technology comes with many ethical questions relating to security and confidentiality, one must continue to explore all means of improving the effectiveness of our services while staying within the bounds of ethical practice (Durham, 2019). So not just supervision training but quality and effective supervision training is the need of the hour. Hence to suitably regulate the profession and improve patient and societal outcomes there is a need to develop a framework suitable to the Indian context and train supervisors.
