Supervision plays a central role in the clinical training of mental health professionals. In Clinical Supervision: A Competency-Based Approach (APA, 2004), Falender and Shafranske created a comprehensive resource for the supervision of mental health practitioners. In this companion casebook, the editors have enlisted an elite group of contributors to help make the leap from theory and research to the real-life, hands-on implementation of the elements of successful supervision.
With expert commentary and detailed excerpts from actual supervisory sessions, the authors describe supervision as process - the process of becoming competent, the process of psychotherapy, and the process of developing as a supervisor. The book examines the supervision relationship in detail and includes supervision tools to help supervisors implement best practices within a competency-based framework.
Whether used alone or in conjunction with the earlier volume, the Casebook for Clinical Supervision will be the standard resource for supervisory competence for years to come.
