Abstract

This paper describes a program designed to train advanced family therapists in the conceptual and technical skills of family therapy supervision. It elaborates upon the relevant content, overall organization, and contextual influences in the complex enterprise of training family therapy supervisors in a program that emphasizes the live observation of the supervisor‐trainee's work. Through the description of the interconnected elements of a particular program, the paper also identifies generic training issues for those interested in teaching the skills of family therapy supervision.
