`The book is written in such a way as to challenge and educate through the use of exercises, scenarios and activities. Something it does rather well.... A well-written, practical and informative publication... of value to supervisees, supervisors and all those involved in counsellor and supervisor training' - Counselling Psychology Review

`This book... argues that the social context is important for the individual client, supervisee and supervisor, as is the context in which the work and supervision are done... it is a clear, well-written and enjoyable book, containing helpful information for both supervisees and supervisors' - Transformations, The PCSR Journal

There is an increasing awareness of the impact of individual factors on therapeutic work, both with clients and with their counsellors in supervision, but the influence of social contexts on this work has been less clearly articulated. This book provides counsellors with practical information about supervising specific types of clients and in specific organizational settings.

Part One addresses four essential aspects of the individual - race, gender, disability and sexual orientation, exploring their influence on the therapeutic relationship and the supervision of trainee and experienced counsellors. Part Two assesses the impact of the organizations where counselling takes place - how different kinds of settings affect work with clients and thus the work of supervision. By highlighting context as a potential source of difficulty for the client, the book encourages trainees and supervisors to look beyond the individual and avoid placing the burden of responsibility for problems upon the client.

`This book... argues that the social context is important for the individual client, supervisee and supervisor, as is the context in which the work and supervision are done... a useful addition to the growing literature on supervision, which is seen as a positive and desirable provision throughout the book... it is a clear, well-written and enjoyable book, containing helpful information for both supervisees and supervisors... it extends the implications for supervision of working with the recognition of the social context as well as the inner world' - Transformations, The PCSR Journal

`This book addresses an important area of counselling-exploring how client characteristics and organisational issues `impact ...on therapeutic work, both with clients and with their counsellors in supervision'.... This thought-provoking book reminds us how much the client's problem is outside their control, and how we as supervisors and counsellors may work with that' - Counselling
