"All health and social care professionals, as well as many others, use supervision as part of professional training and quality control. Supervision is also integral to current initiatives within mental health care such as the UK's Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) services. In these contexts, supervision is used to support the delivery of evidence-based care to those experiencing psychological distress. However, supervision itself has an evidence base and this is not widely utilized. The overwhelming finding from the supervision literature is that the Supervisory Relationship (SR) is what matters most. The aim of this book is to provide cutting-edge, internationally relevant information on the Supervisory Relationship in order to inform study, training, continuing professional development and practice. The authors describe what is known about the Supervisory Relationship, drawing on international research as well as studies conducted by the Oxford Supervision Research Group. They then provide clear, practical guidance on how to establish, develop, maintain, manage and work within effective Supervisory Relationships - the core of all supervision"--

This is a practical guide aimed at supervisors of research students. It is written in a lively case study style and is designed to appeal to supervisors who need a quick fix, and who have neither the time nor the inclination to read a more detailed, in depth book on the subject such as Supervising the Doctorate. There is a growing need for such a volume as the QAA postgraduate code of practice in the UK indicates that all new doctoral supervisors must be trained appropriately. This book will be very suitable for such training courses. The authors both come from a medical background so the book is likely to be particularly well recieved within scientfic and medical departments.

The effectiveness of CBT depends on the quality of the supervision and training that is provided to its practitioners. A Manual for Evidence-Based CBT Supervision is intended to significantly strengthen the available resources for training and supporting CBT supervisors. The authors drew on the insights of many accredited CBT supervisors to develop the guidance, and the work is built firmly on an evidence-based approach. This manual will also be useful for individual supervisors and to those who support and guide trainers and supervisors (e.g., peer groups, consultants, managers, administrators, training directors), as the authors include training supervision guidelines and training materials (e.g., video clips, guidelines and PowerPoint slides).

First published in 1976, Supervision in Social Work has become an essential text for social work educators and students, detailing the state of the field and the place, function, and challenges of supervision in social work practice. This fifth edition takes into account the sizable number of articles and books published on supervision since 2002. Changes in public health and social welfare policy have intensified concern about the social work supervision of licensed practitioners. Tax and spending limitations at all levels of government, combined with the unfolding effects of welfare reform and managed health care, have increasingly emphasized the need for the efficient and accountable administration of health and social services in the private and public sectors. This edition confronts issues raised by these developments, including budgetary allocation and staff management, the problems of worker burnout and safety, the changing demographics and growing diversity of the supervising workforce, evidence-based and licensure supervision, and performance appraisal.

This brief, practical guide to clinical supervision uniquely addresses supervisor and supervisee together. The purpose of the book is to help the supervisory dyad collaborate effectively to meet the goals of supervision: to ensure client welfare, educate and evaluate the supervisee, and help the supervisee cope with the emotional challenges of doing psychotherapy. To do so, the book provides guidance on how to implement evidence-based and best-practice recommendations at each stage of supervision: preparation, beginning, middle, conclusion of active supervision, and the post supervision relationship. The emphasis throughout is on developing and maintaining a positive, collaborative supervisory relationship. Establishing this requires that the members of the dyad understand and agree on their respective roles and responsibilities, trust each other to carry them out, and feel safe enough to discuss the process. This book facilitates this by describing these complementary roles and responsibilities, and by providing activities that help the dyad establish mutual understanding, set goals, and complete necessary tasks. The book also illustrates better and worse ways these roles can be fulfilled from the author’s experience. Other value-added features include sections devoted to: common problems in supervision and how to prevent or manage them, the competencies that supervisors and supervisees require to be prepared for their roles, how to incorporate diversity into supervision, and how to complete supervision contracts and evaluations. Written in an inviting, often conversational, tone the book is an invaluable aid to supervisors and supervisees of all levels of experience.

Based on research in brain science, as well as from the Information Age/Connectivity Age thinking, the book reframes the focus of supervision, management, and leadership to one that collaborates and builds on strengths with supervisees as competent stakeholders in their work with their clients.

If you are a doctoral or non-doctoral student about to begin your internship in school psychology, you may have several questions about the process and what it will involve, and you may even be facing some anxiety about it. If you are a site or university supervisor preparing for the beginning of the internship year, you may be looking for ways to improve the internship experience for your students or for yourself and your fellow supervisors. Newman has used his many years of experience working with interns and field supervisors to create this guide to the school psychology internship process to address these common concerns. He provides a comprehensive overview of the school psychology internship process from start to finish, describing actions that can be taken to promote a high quality, dynamic internship experience. Emphasis is placed on the idea that the internship year is a dynamic and formative experience, not a static event, and that interns and supervisors both must be active planners, coordinators, and shapers of the experience. Each part of the book explores a different phase of the internship, from the first days through job applications and interviews. Helpful and pragmatic tools are included throughout, such as evaluation tools, best practice guidelines, and sample forms. Online resources are also available to complement the book and include reproducible material from the book, videos students can use to practice their interviewing skills, and links to helpful resources.
