Clinical Supervision

Clinical Supervision
A Systems Approach

  • Elizabeth L. Holloway - Whidbey Institute; Antioch University, USA, University of Wisconsin, Madison, USA, University of Oregon, USA, University of Utah, USA, University of California, Santa Barbara, USA


June 1995 | 232 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
"In her systems approach to supervision, the author presents a unique system of clinical supervision developed with her colleagues over years of experience as supervisors of psychologists in training. . . . The book is written in a 'reader-friendly' manner and is both theoretical and practical. The prose is clear; the charts are easily decipherable. Research findings are separated onto single pages interspersed throughout pertinent sections and printed in darker shades to draw the eye. The various levels of the supervisory session (transcript, recall, interview, analysis) are placed in columns side by side for easy comparison. The author has succeeded in dissecting the complex instructional strategy of modeling counseling task, function, and skill within the supervisory relationship. Her work is a valuable complement to the existing body of literature." --Susan B. DeVaney in Counseling Today "The book uses a range of interesting transcipts to illustrate points together with providing up-to-date research information on subjects such as trainee learning needs, supervisor and trainee gender, institutional factors and supervisor experience, to mention but a few. A thought-provoking book and one which I would recommend as profitable reading for those engaged in or considering becoming engaged in the field of supervision." --Gladeana McMahon in BPS Counselling
