Praise for the first edition of "Supervision in the Helping Professions": "The authors of this book really do know their subject well and have organised the presentation in a clear, systematic, readable style, refreshingly devoid of trans-atlantic jargon. It deals with all aspects of supervision and most importantly provides a meaningful blueprint about how useful and effective supervision can be. Let me recommend this book to you without reservation." - "Journal of the British Psychodrama Association"; and, "The one really powerful book in this area, a book that fundamentally changed the way in which people think about supervision and training." - Professor John McLeod, University of Abertay, Dundee, Scotland. The praise also includes: "A very readable book which is of immense help to anyone in a mentoring or supervisory relationship. It will appeal equally to educators, managers and students. All nurses will benefit from reading it. It is reasonably priced and well presented. Buy it."
- Philip Burnard, "Nursing Times"; and, "This timely book offers the reader a comprehensive and practical guide to the complex issues inherent in the supervision of health and social services personnel, from the student on field-work placement to the most experienced therapist." - "British Journal of Occupational Therapy". This is an essential book for supervisors across all the helping professions which explores the purposes, models and different forms of supervision. It also addresses the needs of staff and examines how they can become more able in getting the support and supervision that they need. The first edition was a ground breaking book in the development of supervision and supervisor training. This second edition retains the models for supervising in individual, group, team and organizational settings but in addition adds new material, including: an up to date review of the new literature, practice and training in the field; a chapter on supervising across different cultures; new models on supervising in groups; and ways of introducing better supervision into organizations.
