Self-awareness: A proposal for supervision

  • Lurline C. Purvis


Herein has been presented a questionnaire intended to encourage students in the helping professions to explore their feelings and attitudes and thereby to build self-awareness. I have suggested that such a questionnaire be utilized as a catalyst for small group discussion and interaction. In this way the student's self-awareness and personal and professional growth could be enhanced.
