Supervision is the cornerstone of psychiatric training and yet receives scant attention either in the psychiatric literature or in training institutions. It is frequently a focus of ambivalence for those involved. This paper discusses the functions of supervision and the roles of the supervisor in the belief that attention to these issues will help resolve a number of ambiguities that exist in the supervisory relationship.
