The purpose of this study was to develop the Group Supervision Impact Scale (GSIS). The GSIS measures the positive and negative impact of three main aspects of Group Supervision: the Supervisor, the Group Environment, and the Peer Supervisee. Participants (n = 222) consisted of a national sample of psychology graduate students mainly from clinical and counseling psychology programs who had experience in group supervision. Factor analysis supported three factors: The Group Supervisor Impact Scale (e.g., provision of structure and group focus, constructive utilization of group dynamics, effective feedback, openness, humor, flexibility, competency, and validation), the Group Environment Impact Scale (e.g., unresolved between-member conflicts, competition, support, attraction to group, anxiety), and the Peer Supervisee Impact Scale (e.g., feedback, vicarious learning, generating ideas, treatment planning). Validity of the GSIS is supported by theoretically consistent relationships between the three scales and (a) supervisee satisfaction, (b) supervisory working alliance, (c) group cohesion, (d) supervisor leadership roles, and (e) supervisee self-efficacy
