Supervision is a professional and ethical necessity for all therapists, providing them with support and protecting clients from abuse. Relatively little has been written on the subject, however. This book aims to fill that gap. It contains thirty practical hints to help practitioners and trainee practitioners to develop and enhance the skills they need to be successful in their work. Encouraging, yet sensitive to the difficult issues that frequently arise in supervision, Developing Counselor Supervision covers such areas as creating a supervisory alliance, fostering the supervisory relationship, the use of tape recording, highlighting supervisees' strengths and weaknesses, and protecting the client and therapist.
