Effective Supervision for the Helping Professions
- Michael Carroll - Private Practice
This latest edition has broadened its scope to include professions other than counselling, such as coaching and consultancy. It begins with a comprehensive exploration: what is supervision? which challenges the reader to create their own one minute definition. Includes a fascinating chapter
exploring the concepts of 'voice, identity and power' including the making of meaning through dialogue in supervision. A contemporary text, including contributions from neuroscience and offering case studies and exercises encouraging the reader to consider and reflect. Thoroughly recommended to both fledglings and older birds alike!
This is one of the first books (earlier edition) I read when starting out as a clinical supervisor and I have been recommending it ever since. This latest edition expands the remit of supervision in the helping professions to include other areas such as coaching and further expands on the effective use of supervision in counselling and psychotherapy.
Very appropriate material for students studying counselling and grasping the significance of using supervision effectively to support counselling practice.
The text provides a good overview of supervision counselling and has been adopted as a recommended book
An excellent text for Practice Educators who wish to explore the nature of the supervisory relationship and extend their approach to supervision beyond the managerial domain.
Supervision is an important aspect of the counselling profession and our students will find this useful in addition to their in college learning.
As the title states; this is an effective text for any supervisor / trainee supervisor. It is excellently written and to the point - a welcomed edition to the field of supervision.
