This book presents an integrative relational model for psychotherapy supervision. The focus is on the primacy of the relationship both in psychotherapy and in supervision. This is one of the few books in the field of supervision to focus exclusively and in-depth on issues in clinical supervision. It provides an integrative relational model of supervision drawing on developmental theory that is applicable to the fields of psychotherapy, counselling, and clinical and counselling psychology. The authors believe that this integrative framework for supervision will be of use to supervisors of 'pure-form' approaches as well as to those supervisors involved in cross-orientation supervision since its main focus is on the quality of the supervisory alliance.
