Supervision is about voices. It is about the supervisor’s voice and the supervisee’s voice and the patient’s voice. When things go well, patient, supervisee, and supervisor co-narrate the treatment and supervisory relationships so that the patient can give voice to his life and assume a voice in his lives that is rich, full, and meaningful. The patient’s voice becomes more uniquely her own. Yet, its accent and range reflect internalization of the therapist’s voice and the supervisor’s voice as well. Similarly, the supervisee develops a voice that is more uniquely his/her own, yet within which are detectable nuances, accents, and dialectical tones internalized through the clinical and supervisory experiences.
