Since the publication of the first edition of this book supervision has become of even greater significance in health, education and social care settings, with continuing pace in the trend towards mandatory registration, managed care and clinical governance.
This fully updated and expanded edition includes new chapters on issues of diversity and the managerial role of the supervisor in context. Packed with practical examples in the key areas of personal and professional development, Joyce Scaife and her contributors draw on three decades of clinical experience to explore frequently encountered dilemmas including:
- how supervisors facilitate learning
- the ethical bases of supervision
- creating and maintaining a good working alliance
- how supervisors can balance management and supervision roles
- working equitably in an increasingly diverse and pluralistic world
Supervision in Clinical Practice offers a range of suggestions for providing supervision that are stimulating, creative and fun, using methods that ensure safe and open practice. It is an indispensable text for supervisors and supervisees who practice clinically in a range of professions, including applied psychology, counselling, psychotherapy, psychiatry, nursing, and social work.
