Abstract

This study investigated the effect of supervision training on participating school counselors’ supervision knowledge and supervisor self-efficacy. A randomized experimental research design allowed the unbiased examination of outcomes associated with participation in the Site Supervision Training for School Counselors (SST-SC) program. The researcher conducted repeated measures analyses of variance to explore the effect of a seven-week, asynchronous online site supervision training intervention on school counselors’ supervision knowledge and supervisor self-efficacy. The results indicated a statistically significant main effect for time for supervision knowledge, with both groups showing an increase in test scores from pre- to post-test, regardless of participation in the SST-SC program. The results also revealed a statistically significant main effect for time for supervisor self-efficacy, with the intervention group showing an increase in test scores over time and the waitlist control group showing no significant change in test scores from pre- to post-test. The results from this study provided insight about the effects of supervision training for school counselors.
