Description of Research and Professional Background Highlights

Rod's primary area of scholarship has been counselor training and supervision, with a number of articles, chapters, and books over the past 30 years. His supervision book (Bernard & Goodyear, 2014), now in its fifth edition, has become the standard in the field.

He currently is President of the American Psychological Association’s Society for the Promotion of Psychotherapy (Division 29; website:  and Chair of the Supervision and Training Section, APA Division of Counseling Psychology.

Rod’s Fulbright lectureship in the counseling psychology program at Yonsei University in 2012 awakened an interest in clinical supervision and psychotherapy internationally. This is reflected in both scholarship that he has underway and in practice.  He is particularly interested in how to how to ensure that it is not simply a matter of American and Western European ideas being transplanted elsewhere, but rather one of mutual influence.  He is working now in an ongoing training program for clinical supervisors that is sponsored by the Chinese Clinical and Counseling Psychology Registration System of the Chinese Psychological Society.
