A skill development model of supervision— microsupervision is presented. This training model addresses the need for identifying the skills and knowledge for training university counselor educators and supervisors in mental health related agencies in supervisory skills. Specifically, it is designed to provide a systematic approach for training clinical supervisors involved in pursuing continuing professional education and in staff development activities. This model views the supervisory process as consisting of specific skill components which can be taught following a three stage model of Assessment, Modeling, and Transfer. Analytical and intensive in involving the learner, this model individualizes supervision, adaptable to the level of proficiency of the supervisor and to the skills unique to the supervisor's needs.
