The Leader received this letter in response to “Bullying and Intimidation in Clinical Supervision” by James M. Mancinelli in the December 2017 issue.
During the mid-1980s I was one of nine graduate students in a newly organized speech-language pathology/audiology clinical program at a large urban hospital. Verbal intimidation and personal criticism were prevalent. Although we shared our stories with each other, we lodged only one collective formal complaint at a faculty meeting close to our graduation date. Among the peers with whom I’ve remained in contact, several have participated in clinical and academic instruction with the express intent to provide a learning experience free from the undue drama and fear we unfortunately associate with practicum experiences even 30 years later.

The Leader received many responses to the December articles on incivility and bullying among faculty, in the workplace and by clinical supervisors. See more responses in the February issue.
