This non-experimental quantitative study investigated the relationship between supervisory style, satisfaction with supervision, and the level of self-efficacy reported by the study participants. The study was based on counselor supervision theories found in the literature. The study investigated whether there was a difference between traditional and non-traditional students' perceived satisfaction with supervision and their level of reported self-efficacy. The Supervisory Style Inventory (SSI), The Satisfaction Questionnaire (SSQ), and Counseling Self-Estimate Inventory (COSE) were the instruments used in this study. The study sample consisted of 72 female doctoral level graduate students who were completing, and post-doc fellows, who had previously completed, their internship training and clinical supervision at various Association of Psychology Postdoctoral & Internship Center training sites in the United States. Correlational and regression analysis was used to investigate the questions and hypotheses one, two and three. Research question four used an Independent Sample t Test to test the difference between the variables. The results showed that there was not a significant correlation between supervisory style and satisfaction with supervision. However, there was a significant correlation between supervisory style, and level of self-efficacy reported by participants. Additional findings showed that there was not a significant correlation among traditional and non-traditional students' perceived satisfaction with supervision and level(s) of reported self-efficacy. Lastly, the research concluded that satisfaction with supervision and the level of self-efficacy reported by the study's participants, did have a significant relationship for both groups when comparing the traditional and non-traditional students who participated in this study.
