"A welcome addition to the literature... I thank Brigid Proctor for her guidelines for good practice and stimulating ideas for using the potential of groupwork within the supervision process."
Among the plethora of supervision books, Group Supervision is the only one dedicated to working in groups. The strength of group supervision is that it can provide a supportive environment in which practitioners freely share and learn from their own and others' experience.
As Brigid Proctor shows, the key to success is to find positive and creative ways of working with the diversity which characterizes all groups. Examining tasks, roles, and responsibilities of both supervisors and supervisees, she describes the skills needed for
- Managing different types of groups
- Developing a flexible leadership style
- Making sense of group and individual needs
- Using creative methods
Essential for all supervisors and their trainers, the practical and ethical information covered in this book will also be of benefit to those who manage organizations which provide group supervision for counsellors and psychotherapists– be they employees, volunteers, or trainees.
