Series Basic Texts in Counselling and Psychotherapy

Supervision is essential for counsellors and psychotherapists, but it can create emotional pressures and practical dilemmas. This
book offers a sympathetic introduction to supervision that helps the reader to think through these complex issues. Rooted in the psychodynamic tradition, this book provides the reader with a sophisticated understanding of theory whilst exploring the principles that underpin good practice. The text gives useful insights into the conflicts and possibilities offered by supervision to both supervisor and supervisee. Drawing on case studies taken directly from the author's own experience, the individual chapters consider issues in a variety of settings, from group supervision and supervising in institutions, to working with difference and supervising those with clients in crisis. Thought-provoking and enjoyable to read, this book encourages the reader to reflect on their own practice. It is an ideal text for those beginning to supervise as well as for experienced practitioners looking to refresh their knowledge and skills.
