Standardized trauma-based curriculum designed to inform the supervision of counselors have yet to be integrated into counselor education, despite the fact that researchers report high trauma-exposure rates among United States residents. Further, mental health settings can have a negative impact on supervisees if there is a lack of training in protective strategies. We apply elements of trauma-specific supervision (Etherington, 2009) to mitigate vicarious and secondary trauma in novice counselors.
