Supervision provides a positive space for compassion, inquiry, reflection, and above all development. The chapters in this book are written from a wide range of perspectives, all of which take a practical approach to supervision and show how transformative it can be when approached in the right way. Contributions range from explorations of supervision as a journey of life-long learning and its place at the heart of practice to chapters on faith, transformation, dealing with feelings, and working with asylum seekers and refugees. The multidisciplinary approach covers much ground not previously touched upon, and every contribution demonstrates just how powerful and transformational passionate supervision has the potential to be. This book will be an invaluable resource for anyone working in the helping professions, for whom supervision is an integral part of their work.
