A qualitative approach was used to study the perspective of supervisors providing supervision for trauma-informed practice in trauma impacted environments. Twelve supervisors, diverse in personal and professional background, participated in a single unstructured in-depth interview. The 12 interviews were recorded and content-analyzed. Three main themes emerged from the analysis, including factors that shaped supervision for trauma-informed practice, challenges in providing it, and perceived effective strategies. These themes are embedded within the narratives of the supervisors. Implications for practice and research are offered as ways to supervise from a trauma-informed lens within trauma impacted environments.
