Abstract: Accreditation standards in counseling allow triadic supervision, one supervisor meeting with two supervisees simultaneously, as a substitute for individual supervision. Research, however, has indicated that triadic sessions may complement individual and group supervision by offering unique learning opportunities not present in other supervision modalities. We describe a peer supervision approach that capitalizes on these learning opportunities while addressing some of the challenges in conducting triadic supervision (e.g., helping supervisees give constructive feedback, keeping both engaged). We include structured peer review forms used with practicum and internship supervisees and describe different supervisor roles during triadic supervision with these two groups.
