Hall-Marley (2001) developed this Supervisor Feedback form as an instrument to provide feedback to supervisors on the traineeí»s experience of supervision.  The form consists of sections including atmosphere for learning, supervision style, supervision conduct, and supervision impact.  It is recommended a supervisor feedback form be used a minimum of four times during the training year and ideally, more frequently.  It is a tool in establishing a dialogue and a feedback loop which should enhance the supervisory alliance.
