The growing importance of clinical supervision makes it timely to formulate and pilot an evidence-based approach. This entails specifying a rationale for supervision skills that is grounded in research evidence and enjoys a consensus amongst supervisors, implementing an educational system to develop those skills, and evaluating the effectiveness of this approach. The present study tackles these tasks by detailing an evidence-based approach to clinical supervision; by implementing regular consultancy sessions to try and develop one supervisor's competence; and by evaluating (within a multiple baseline design) the effectiveness of these sessions and the clinical supervision provided to three supervisees. Based on systematic observations of 30 supervision sessions conducted over an 8-month period, the results indicated that the consultancy led to modest improvements in the supervision. The supervision was highly rated by the supervisees throughout the study period. Implications are drawn for developing evidence-based supervision, emphasizing the instructional and methodological components. Copyright © 2001 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
