The clinical supervision field is largely “a green field” site with multiple unaddressed questions both regarding process and especially outcomes. The “write up” should BROADLY follow the format indicated in university guides to writing up psychology research projects.
      OR

      • Similarities and differences between research/academic content and supervisor experience should be highlighted and discussed.
