Abstract: Although clinical supervision is an educational endeavor (Borders & Brown, 2005), many scholars neglect theories of learning in working with supervisees. The authors describe 1 learning theory—information processing theory (Atkinson & Shiffrin, 1968, 1971; Schunk, 2016)—and the ways its associated interventions may enhance the supervision enterprise.
