I confess to a selfish stance with respect to teaching. Doing so forces me to remain current in the areas I am teaching. As well, I value the opportunity to learn from students through the observations they provide and -- especially -- their questions and challenges to received wisdom.

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 was the 2015 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. He is particularly interested in ensuring that there is a two-way exchange of ideas so that it is not simply a matter of transplanting North American and Western European ideas elsewhere, but rather one of mutual influence. This international focus is reflected in scholarship that he has underway and in his professional activities. He is working now, for example, as a trainer for clinical supervisors in a program sponsored by the Chinese Clinical and Counseling Psychology Registration System of the Chinese Psychological Society.
