As new techniques and approaches to supervision attract interest within therapy-related professions, the contributors to this informative book consider the nature of a supervision and examine the ways in which it can be further defined and developed. Drawing together practical and theoretical perspectives, Integrative Approaches to Supervision examines the contribution that supervision can make within both organisational and individual settings.
The book covers frameworks and models for supervision, supervision in clinical practice and issues within integrative supervision. Topics include: different models of the supervision practice; anti-oppressive practice; spirituality and supervision; counselling supervision in health care; supervision of organisations; self-protection for supervisors from complaints and litigation. Wide in scope but rich in detail, this book is essential reading for psychotherapists, counsellors, consultants and students involved in the supervision process.
This book, written by and for those working in therapy-related professions, is based on conference material presented to the 1999 British Association for Supervision Research and Practice ( BASPR ) Conference and thus many of the chapters have a friendly, informal style. ... the book allows you to read one or two chapters, discover new ideas and tools for your supervision "kitbag" , then go away and try them out. The advantage of this book is that you only have to decide which chapter you want to read first - you dont have to miss something else that in a conference setting might be happening at the same time.
