Supervision in family therapy is becoming more theoretically homogeneous, with a definite systems orientation. In this paper, family therapy supervision is introduced in relation to its predecessor, individual psychotherapy supervision. In addition, strengths and weaknesses of various settings where family supervision takes place (i.e., universities, private practices, free-standing institutes, public agencies, and short-term workshops) are discussed. Finally, some of the rules and expectations of the Commission on Supervision of the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy, developed during the writer’s tenure on this body, are presented.
