The professional tasks of those who provide therapy are multidimensional and complex, just as those who conduct therapy come from multiple disciplines. Counsellors, psychologists, social workers, psychiatrists, and in some instances nurses, educators, clergy, life coaches, and pastoral carers all engage in psychologically therapeutic activities.
Without the support and encouragement of colleagues these essential professionals run the risk of suffering a range of factors affecting their roles, including compassion fatigue, burnout, and stagnating professional development. Thus, the need to be involved with ongoing supervision is essential.
First published in 2009, The Practice of Clinical Supervision quickly proved itself as the leading state-of-the-art text for supervision training of a range of clinical therapists. This new and expanded edition now comprehensively covers the entire range of professional, personal and organisational issues that need to be addressed to ensure quality supervision for both counsellors and clinicians. With a global focus and an impressive list of 16 experienced contributors from Australia, Canada and the US, this book provides a wealth of practical information, advice, theory, research evidence, and essential training for supervisors.
