According to Pearson (2004), a supervisor wears many hats and is a teacher, counselor, and consultant, roles that are equally important. As a teacher, he says, a clinical supervisor is the expert who directs and instructs the intern during his practice. As well, he answers any questions the intern may have in the process of counseling, especially with regard to techniques he will need to use, interventions as well as conceptualizing. Consequently, a supervisee may lean on the supervisor, seeing him as the authority figure in the relationship. Moreover, as a teacher, a supervisor monitors and evaluates the supervisee and ensures that all procedures with regard to the counseling process, tests, and their interpretations, as well as ethics, are followed. Whenever possible, he assists the supervisee in assessment procedures, measurement, and in their interpretation.
