This paper is offered as a beginning toward including client perspectives on treatment and client participation in supervision. Rather than see therapists as “technical experts who do things to people,” many of us now see therapists as nonexperts “who create conversations with people” (Goolishian & Anderson, 1992). This new shift challenges the traditional training positions of supervisor and supervisee, respectively. Including clients' voices the supervisor participate from a “nonexpert” position.
