Christopher served as a practicum supervisor for two semesters in the University of Central Florida Community Counseling and Research Center. During his time as a school counselor in Louisiana, he served as a site supervisor for practicum and internship students from Louisiana State University.
He utilizes a developmental approach to supervision, matching techniques and interventions with the needs of the supervisee. His approach utilizes the developmental framework and professional activity domains of the Integrated Developmental Model (IDM; Stoltenberg, 1997; Stoltenberg & McNeil, 2010; Stoltenberg, McNeil & Delworth, 1998) and process-oriented elements proposed by Hawkins & Shohet (1991).
The areas that receive attention in supervision include counseling skills, case conceptualization, treatment planning, therapeutic alliance, professional behaviors, and supervisee self awareness. Supervisory actions include, but are not limited to, feedback based on audio and video report, roleplays, homework, Interpersonal Process Recall (Kagan, 1976; 1980; Kagan & Kagan, 1997), and formative assessment.
