Concluding Thoughts on SF Supervision

  • Frank N. Thomas


But popularity is not truth, nor does it determine value. I believe people overreach many times when promoting models or approaches. Some commit their professional (or even personal) lives to endorsing particular ways of thinking, resulting in their credibility being stretched thin. Others even act deceptively, directing us to watch the staged presentation but bristling when we try to look behind the curtain. Whether one is postmodernist or modernist, evidence based or experiential, promoting a viewpoint should not involve prohibiting careful examination by others. At the same time, proponents of opposing views should not dismiss my own based only on their private evaluative criteria. Before you leave this paragraph completely confused, let me attempt to clarify with a few examples and then bring it back to SF supervision.
