The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between the bond component of the supervisory alliance and trainee disclosure of clinically relevant events in supervision. This is a procedural replication of Okek’s 2013 study using a novel analog-based survey assessing for willingness and likelihood of disclosure provided scenarios in psychotherapy practice, as well as bond, degree of collaboration in the supervisory relationship, and degree of hierarchy within the respondents’ respective internship training sites. One hundred, eighty-nine predoctoral psychology interns ( N = 189) completed the web-based self-report questionnaires assessing willingness and likelihood of disclosure provided scenarios in psychotherapy practice, as well as alliance bond, degree of collaboration in the supervisory relationship, and degree of hierarchy within the respondents’ respective internship training sites, and demographic items. Analyses revealed statistically significant positive correlations between (a) the supervisory alliance and comfort with and likelihood of disclosure, (b) supervisory alliance and participants’ perception of collaboration within their supervisory relationships. No relationship was found between supervisory alliance and perceived degree of hierarchy at respondents’ training sites. This study supports and expands on previous research on disclosure and supervisory alliance. Implications for supervision and clinical practice are explored.
