"This book provides a rich source of rigorously argued, well researched and detailed clinical material for individuals from counselling, or counselling psychology backgrounds, who wish to develop supervisory skills." --Therapeutic Communities "The text holds a key place for creativity, for "artistry" in practice, for awe and for wonder. This important contribution has relevance for supervisors in a wide range of settings and from diverse theoretical orientations." --The Therapist In this innovative book, Elizabeth Holloway presents a new model of clinical supervision that embraces different theoretical approaches to counselling, moving away from models limited to only one approach. The book emphasizes research-based techniques and principles through boxes that summarize empirical work and define and illustrate key constructs of the model. However, there is also a major focus on 'artistry' in practice, which the author demonstrates using supervision interview transcripts, cases and other examples of actual supervisory interactions. This guide will stimulate supervisors to think about supervision as they make critical decisions in supervisory strategy, trainee skill development and professional ethics. Clinical Supervision bolsters the supervisor in his or her challenge to create a learning context that will enhance counsellors' understanding of the skills, attitudes and knowledge necessary to work effectively with clients.
