Freedom to Practise: Person-centred Approaches to Supervision

Author(s): Keith Tudor


This book is the first to focus exclusively on person-centred supervision. The editors explore the practice of supervision in the light of person-centred philosophy and theory, review and critique the generic literature on supervision and then look at some of the issues, questions and dilemmas that arise in supervision. The contributors come from a variety of backgrounds and work in different settings. Editors and contributors share two things: a commitment to person-centred principles in their work, and a wish to extend and expand the range of person-centred practice. This book offers a model of supervision that is consistent with person-centred principles and describes some of the ways in which person-centred practitioners can converse with colleagues from other disciplines and in other areas of work.

Product Information

This book is a thought-provoking and engaging addition to the literature on supervision. The editors have a vast knowledge of the field and clearly and authoritatively state their philosophy of person-centred supervision. This provides the context for the subsequent chapters by different authors. These cover a wide range of issues and topics which will be of real value to all supervisors to whatever school they belong. Robin Shohet, co-author of Supervision in the Helping Professions
