Presenters will share findings from a two-year study with clinical mental health counseling students, which investigated the effects of a creative supervision group during their internship year. Participants each created a unique metaphor to represent their counselor identity development, then worked with this metaphor through a series of creative and experiential activities.  From the combination of the group experience, using creative and experiential activities, and emphasizing the transformative learning dimension of professional identity development, several themes emerged that can inform pedagogy in counselor education.  The impact of using metaphor along with a creative and experiential approach to supervision, as well as the pedagogical implications, will be discussed. Supported by a 2014 research grant from NCACES.
