Clinical supervision and internal locus of control


The concept of Locus of Control (LOC) has been written about extensively since the term was first introduced by Rotter in 1966. Locus of control and a person's position along a bipolar scale of internalism to externalism has been shown to have effect on many aspects of one's life. Position on the scale varies according to the aspect of an individual's personality that is being examined, for example occupational, educational, health etc. This article will examine the benefit of an internal locus of control (iLOC) for an individual (a supervisee) in relation to clinical supervision and continuing professional development.
