Supervising Counsellors

Supervising Counsellors
Issues of Responsibility

First Edition
Edited by:

May 2001 | 208 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
Supervising Counsellors is a practical and insightful guide to the responsibilities facing all those involved in supervising practitioners and trainees. Drawing together contributions and new research from those at the forefront of supervisory practice, this book makes essential reading for both qualified and trainee supervisors.

Part One defines the supervisor's clinical, legal and ethical responsibilities, and clearly sets out the law and professional codes relating to supervision. Part Two examines issues that arise for supervisors working in different contexts: organizations; training; primary care; and some of the wider issues concerning supervision, and highlights in particular the expectations of supervisees and the role of supervisors in ensuring that clients are not discriminated against.

`I found this edition on supervising counsellors comprehensive and most accessible.... This book does not lay down the rules of supervision rather it illustrates problem areas and offers guidelines, thus supporting the supervisor, while ensuring that the supervisee gets the best supervision possible' - Eisteach

Essential reading for all trainee counsellors and their supervisors.

Well written with some excellent names in the world of supervision as contributors.
