Supervisee disclosure of countertransference reactions is an essential aspect of clinical supervision (Falender a Shafranske, 2004). This study investigated the impact of the supervisory alliance on the likelihood of psychology intern countertransference disclosure in clinical supervision and self-reported comfort in making such disclosures. One hundred and seventy-five interns completed the Working Alliance Inventory-Supervisee version (Bahrick, 1989), the Reaction Disclosure Questionnaire, and a demographics questionnaire. A positive association was found between the working alliance in supervision and the likelihood of countertransference disclosures to supervisors, as well as the level of comfort supervisees have in making such disclosures. Supervisees also rated themselves as being more likely to disclose countertransference reactions when the working alliance is strong, even if they do not feel comfortable in doing so. Supervisee-supervisor similarity on gender, ethnicity, or theoretical orientation were found to not have an influence on the likelihood of or comfort with disclosures in supervision; rather, the strength of the working alliance has the greatest influence on disclosures in supervision.Little Company of Mary Hospital Rehabilition Center September 2005-July 2006 Supervisor: Dan Sherman, Ph.D. ... implementing discharge plans for patients; and developed and implemented a training manual for practicum students. ... coordinated schedules of Counseling Center therapists and interns; served as front-office staff; assisted the Director of the Marriage and Family xi Supervisory Alliance.
