Editorial Reviews for this title:
Thanks to the input from numerous supervisors representing a wide variety of settings, theoretical models and backgrounds, this has become the definitive text on clinical supervision from a systemic perspective. It contains a wealth of material for beginning and experienced supervisors, regardless of theoretical persuasion. It is suitable as a text on MFT supervision or for a prominent place on the bookshelf of practicing supervisors.
This comprehensive, state of the art book takes a sophisticated look at marriage and family therapy supervision. The major sections of the book address broad areas that all supervisors should be knowledgeable about, including context, philosophy, relationships, pragmatics, and supervisory training. The major models of MFT supervision—from psychoanalytic to the postmodernism approaches—are presented. Ways of using a wide range of intervention strategies are highlighted including the use of genograms, reflecting teams in case presentation, and taped and live supervision. The book targets the objectives for supervisory training established by the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy. To extend the usefulness of the book, an accompanying resource guide contains practical tips, easy access to supervision resources, and forms that can be easily reproduced and adapted to enhance any supervisors's practice. For professionals working in the field of marriage and family therapy.
