Feedback is described in general terms here. Within the Mental Health area there are four major skill areas that comprise the focus of supervision: process (intervention) skills, conceptualisation skills, personalisation skills and professional skills (Bernard, 1994, cited in Pearson, 2004, p. 366). By breaking supervision down into these focus areas, you and your student are provided with a framework so that you can target your feedback and offer a discrete method to identify your student’s strengths and challenges.
