Psychotherapy supervision is an essential aspect of psychiatric residency training. The authors surveyed the attitudes of the PGY I–IV psychiatry residents in the Baylor College of Medicine residency toward psychotherapy supervision. The results were compared to those of a previous nationwide survey of Canadian psychiatry residents. The Baylor residents identified three factors as the most important elements of satisfactory supervision: the supervisor’s teaching ability, rapport between the supervisor and the trainee, and the supervisor’s fund of knowledge.
