Peer feedback is an important vicarious experience holding potential to increase counseling self-efficacy and behaviors related to performance. Researchers have reported that supervisees perceive peer feedback to be at times more helpful than supervisor feedback yet peer feedback in group supervision was less constructive and not always helpful (Borders, Welfare, Greason, Paladino, Mobley, Villalba, & Wester, 2012). This presentation will explore the use of peer feedback and ways to integrate the Structured Peer Group Supervision model in teaching and supervision of counselors in training.
1. Participants will identify the strengths and challenges of using peer feedback in skill development courses and supervision.
2. Participants will explore the use of peer feedback in supervision using the Structure Peer Feedback Model and how to adapt this model in various courses/modalities.
3. Presenters will identify benefits to counselor and client based on enhanced perspectives offered through the diverse viewpoints represented through the model.
