from supervision by bringing
What formulation am I Is the formulation Yes Is therapy progressing Yes this case?
using with this patient? guiding my treatment as expected / as originally • How would I verbalise it as
What mechanims are plan? hypothesised? a question?
operating to keep the problem • Am I using supervision
going for this patient? No effectively by bringing
this case?
Why is the formulation
not guiding the
treatment plan?
Generate possible supervision questions
• Can I frame a suitable question?
• What are my hypotheses about the obstacles to treatment?
• Have I checked out my ideas with the patient? (If not, why not?)
• Is my question about: risk, theory, mechanisms, technique,
content vs. process ...

If no suitable supervision question develops Notes:

• Are there any assumptions, feelings, beliefs, or fears I hold about
supervision in general which may be preventing the development
of a question?
(e.g. previous ways of being supervised, fear of being told I’m a bad
therapist, feeling unsafe in supervision)
• Am I allowing enough preparation time for supervision?
(at least 30 minutes)
• Have I brainstormed ideas for the question?
• Is my caseload going so well that I have no need for a question?
(If so, how else could I use the supervision?
