As with the actual practices of speech-language pathologists and audiologists, clinical education and supervision practices work best when they are grounded not only in concept and theory but also in research. Designed to act as a complete guide to both the theory and the research, The Clinical Education and Supervisory Process in Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology provides the most up-to-date information on these crucial topics.

Following in the footsteps of their mentor, Jean Anderson, Drs. Elizabeth McCrea and Judith Brasseur have taken on the task of assembling important current research and best practices in clinical education and supervision into one comprehensive resource. With their prestigious team of contributing authors, this text represents the culmination of decades of study and real-world best practices.

The Clinical Education and Supervisory Process in Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology covers clinical education and supervision across five unique constituent groups: clinical educators of graduate students, preceptors of audiology externs, mentors of clinical fellows, supervisors of support personnel, and supervisors of professionals transitioning between work settings. It also includes the latest information on certification and accreditation requirements for preparation in supervision.

Topics include:

  • Foundations: Anderson’s Continuum of Supervision
  • Components of the Process
  • Expectations for Supervision
  • Practical Research in Supervision
  • Literature from other Disciplines
  • Obtaining Feedback About the Supervisory Process
  • The Ethics of Clinical Education and Supervision
  • Supervisor Self-Study and Accountability
  • Interprofessional Education and Practice in Clinical Education and Supervision

Chapter appendices add numerous ancillary materials, allowing readers to easily adopt the most successful processes and strategies the research has revealed. Sample scripts of supervisory conferences, self-assessment tools, action plan tools, and analysis systems can all be found inside.

The Clinical Education and Supervisory Process in Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology is intended as a primary resource for anyone in those professions in any setting who is engaged in the process of clinical education and supervision. With this text as their guide, clinical educators and supervisors will be able to ground their practices in the vast compiled research and study contained within.

Elizabeth S. McCrea, PhD, CCC-SLP, F-ASHA is a clinical professor emerita of the Department of Speech and Hearing Sciences at Indiana University. She retired from the university in 2011. As a member of the department’s faculty, she was both a didactic and clinical educator. She taught courses in the clinical process, professional issues, clinical education, and the organization and administration of public school communication disorders programs. She was also a clinical instructor in the department’s R. L. Milisen Speech and Language Clinic at Indiana University, with an emphasis on children’s speech sound and language disorders and language-learning disorders. Dr. McCrea was director of the R. L. Milisen Speech and Hearing Center for almost a decade and coordinator of the department’s externship program in speech-language pathology until her retirement. Before joining the faculty, Dr. McCrea was a pediatric speech-language pathologist in both school-based and hospital settings. 

In addition to her teaching and administration, Dr. McCrea’s research focused on identifying the parameters of best practice in clinical education and supervision; this work contributed to the foundation for the development of ASHA’s technical and knowledge and skill documents for clinical education and supervision, as well as to the profession’s standards for appropriate supervision. She was the principal investigator of a $326,000 4-year personnel preparation grant from the U.S. Department of Education centered on developing leadership personnel in clinical education in the professions. She has presented over 50 peer-reviewed or invited papers at national and state meetings on the clinical education process and effective behavior of both supervisors and supervisees within the process.

Judith A. Brasseur, PhD, CCC-SLP, F-ASHA is a professor emerita of the Communication Arts and Sciences Department at California State University (CSU), Chico. She retired from the university in 2010 after 30 years in the Communication Sciences and Disorders (CMSD) program, where she taught undergraduate and graduate courses and supervised on and off campus, with an emphasis on children’s speech sound, fluency, and language disorders. She held administrative roles in the CMSD program both as program coordinator for 9 years and clinic director for 7 years. In addition, for 19 years she directed the doctoral incentive programs for underrepresented students on the Chico campus that operated through CSU, Chico’s Graduate School, part of the California State University system-wide effort to increase the number of underrepresented students who progress through the educational pipeline and obtain doctoral degrees and careers in academe. Dr. Brasseur is a fellow of both ASHA and the California Speech-Language-Hearing Association (CSHA). 

Dr. Brasseur’s research involved investigations in treatment for functional child articulation and phonological disorders and best practices in clinical supervision. She was principal investigator of a $112,082 2-year personnel preparation grant from the U.S. Department of Education to provide a three-part, 9 credit-hour training program for off-campus supervisors, funded for a third year by the university. She is coauthor of The Supervisory Process in Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology, has also presented over 50 peer-reviewed or invited presentations at state and national meetings, and has more than 30 publications to her credit.
