Integrative Approaches to Supervision

Michael Carroll, Margaret Tholstrup, eds

As new techniques and approaches to supervision attract interest within therapy-related professions, the contributors to this informative book consider the nature of a supervision and examine the ways in which it can be further defined and developed. Drawing together practical and theoretical perspectives, Integrative Approaches to Supervision examines the contribution that supervision can make within both organisational and individual settings.
The book covers frameworks and models for supervision, supervision in clinical practice and issues within integrative supervision. Topics include: different models of the supervision practice; anti-oppressive practice; spirituality and supervision; counselling supervision in health care; supervision of organisations; self-protection for supervisors from complaints and litigation. Wide in scope but rich in detail, this book is essential reading for psychotherapists, counsellors, consultants and students involved in the supervision process.

Systemic Supervision

A Portable Guide for Supervision Training

Gill Gorell Barnes, Gwynneth Down, Damian McCann

As the training of family and systemic practitioners becomes increasingly more formalised, the issue of supervision and supervisory training has grown in importance. Systemic Supervision evaluates the practical and theoretical issues involved in implementing and maintaining effective supervisory training within a family therapy practice. The authors outline the UKCP requirements for supervision as interpreted through the Association of Family Therapy Guidelines, and provide an overview of a course designed to cover these requirements, including models of theory, structures for setting up supervised practice at work and a description of new models of therapy which have affected the processes of supervision.
Supervision may also create practical and ethical dilemmas, which may arise from personality differences, communication problems or social contexts. Systemic Supervision examines the relationship between supervisor and trainee in terms of power, gender, ethnicity and sexuality, and ways to deal with these issues. In their conclusion, the authors evaluate what new issues for therapy and theory the development of supervisor training creates.
Systemic Supervision is unique in examining supervision within family therapy, and in drawing out not just the theoretical implications but also looking at the practical questions involved. Its recommendations are based on the authors' experience of setting up and running supervisory practices. It will be essential reading for those at all levels working with families.
