Taking Supervision Forward: The Beginning of a New Curriculum on Supportive Supervision in Counseling
Charles C. CHAN（陳清海）
The need for a common understanding and implementation of an accountable and sustainable curriculum on supervision in counseling is deferred far too long in Hong Kong. This article first distilled experiences from both the United States and Britain, then situated a detailed discussion on the nature of supervision within the context of the current public policy reforms. It then went on to build a set of theoretical and practical assumptions which boldly saw the new curriculum as, at once, input, content, and outcome in context as well as praxis. This new curriculum is currently being road-tested under a supportive supervision scheme in a collaborative effort between a professional association and a team of consultant supervisors and trainers from a university, the first ever introduced in Hong Kong. The scheme aims to build professional capacity in certified supervisors for the counseling profession.
