The study aimed to highlight the functioning of the organizational framework supporting psychotherapy supervision at psychotherapy training institutions in Sweden. Data from course coordinators and supervisors was collected. Two questionnaires were constructed (Course Coordinator Questionnaire and Supervisor Questionnaire). Our results indicated that the organizational framework for different training institutions were similar with regard to the perceived primary task, i.e. supervision goals and overall framework. According to the course coordinators, there were certain differences with regard to role distribution, group composition, information, routines, regularity and accessibility. Economic and geographical conditions had a substantial influence on the design and functioning of the framework. The supervisors stressed the importance of explicit organizational frames, clear information and routines for, e.g. evaluation, how to deal with conflicts and failing, and above all the need for a competent and flexible course coordinator.
