ABSTRACT
We review the research on the involvement of faith in supervision within the leading model of supervision—a developmental model. The developmental model of supervision aims for supervisors to match supervision interventions to the level of counselor development. We find that substantial research on the integration of faith and practice has transpired, and the major findings are reviewed. Nevertheless, a vigorous research agenda is still possible. We suggest that such research should (a) identify specific spiritual or religious (S/R) competencies on which to focus at each level of counselor development, (b) develop better assessment instruments for measuring development of competence and comfort with S/R issues, (c) describe how different theological traditions might require different competencies, (d) be explicit about the theoretical model of integration that supervisors follow, (e) identify evidence-based counseling interventions to teach during supervision, (f) determine the extent and style of discussion of S/R issues during supervision, and (g) detect how personal SIR values of supervisors, counselors, and clients interact to produce different client outcomes.
