Abstract

Provision of feedback is a vital component of the supervisory process. The challenge for clinical supervisors is how to make this feedback an effective catalyst for positive change without damaging the supervisory relationship. Many professions outside of speech-language pathology have studied various forms of feedback and their effects. This paper summarizes a number of research articles drawn from the fields of communication studies, speech-language pathology, medical education and counseling. These articles provide details as to what constitutes effective or ineffective feedback along with guidelines for successful implementation of feedback in clinical supervision. Positive and negative aspects of peer feedback in the supervision process are also discussed.
