"Strengths-Based Supervision in Clinical Practice is a clear shift toward the relational and mutual supervisory practice that challenges and encourages the clinician to move beyond the established hierarchical models of supervision. Intentional and conversational in its presentation, the author affords the reader a refreshing, empowering, and integrated command of clinically oriented practices."
"Jeffrey Edwards provides a refreshing conversational style in which to communicate the distinctions and, dare I say, strengths of a strengths-based clinical supervisory stance. While acknowledging the contributions of other supervisory theories, Edwards offers a lively re-viewing of key tenets of the counseling profession's philosophical roots that mesh with his strengths-based model of clinical supervision.
"Dr. Edwards has provided a positive strengths-based overview of clinic-based supervision. Supervisors will come away with a new, more positive approach on how to conduct their relationships with those they supervise. The book is especially strong on the MFT forms of supervision though other approaches are also referenced. The illustrations from his interactions with supervisees are especially helpful in fleshing out the ideas he is highlighting. Supervisors in clinical settings will find much to consider in this volume."
Very useful for teaching second and third years on the BSc nursing programme. I hope to use this on post reg programmes for health care professionals.
A great book to help practitioners focus on quality supervision.
I am still considering it and need to compare it to other texts as well.
supports the progression of students into qualified nursing career. is a useful guide on top of health board provision of what effective supervision is in clinical practice
Very important text which provides in depth understanding of strength based perspectives
Course not specifically about "clinical" supervision.
This is a well written and well thought out text that will appeal to learners.
Practitioners and supervisors with a wide range of experience will be able to make good use of this text.
I have recommended this text to students who are completing four year B Sc nursing and about to undertake 36 week internship programme prior to registration. The advantage of this text is its adoption of a strengths based approach which is the foundation of my teaching approach for practice intervention in mental health setting. The intention of recommending this text is to provide students with supplemental reading and future direction relating to professional supervision.
Probable use Fall 2013
Useful for group and individual supervision practice. Informative and easy to navigate through the chapters.
Useful overview of progressive ways to provide supervision that mirror therapy and allows supervisors to model positive relationship buliding styles during supervision, thereby encouraging supervisees to adopt similar positive styles during therapy.
a really encouraging and positive approach to what some new professionals find challenging
good book but quite in a specialised field
Useful book to supplement existing text
Supervisory models - helpful to recap from the strengths perspective.
Interpersonal relationship skills including conflict resolution is covered well.
Vignettes helpful but clearly US centric. Also UK people need to be aware of US legislation being cited.
