FERNANDEZ-REGUERAS, Diego; LUQUE-GONZALEZ, Alba; GUERRERO-ESCAGEDO, M Cristina  and  CALERO-ELVIRA, Ana. Compliance with clinical supervision guidelines and its relations with confidence of the supervisees. Clínica y Salud [online]. 2023, vol.34, n.3, pp.117-121.  Epub Mar 18, 2024. ISSN 2174-0550.

Background: Clinical supervision is a procedure for the training of health psychologists based on the guidance of more expert professionals, who provide guidelines for action. Using observational methodology, the aim of this paper is to study compliance with the guidelines and probably related variables, such as the confidence of the therapists with supervision and its methods. Method: Six novice therapists, seven supervisors, and 31 users participated in the study; all of them belonged to the university clinic of the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (CPA-UAM). Confidence was assessed using a self-report questionnaire and compliance with the guidelines using an observational rating-scale. Results: The most common method of supervision was discussion; confidence with supervision and its methods were associated with greater compliance with the guidelines. Conclusions: The results of this study open the door to the development of a guide for action for supervisors, helping them in their task.
