Supervision is now an important and essential part of everyday practice across mental health professions. In Supervision in the Mental Health Professions, Joyce Scaife, along with her guest contributors, draws on over two decades of experience to illustrate ways of thinking about and doing supervision. Using practical examples, she explores often-encountered dilemmas, including: how can supervisors facilitate learning? what are the ethical bases of supervision? what helps to create a good working alliance? Supervision in the Mental Health Professions is a comprehensive, practical and indispensable text for supervisors and supervisees involved in mental health care, including clinical psychology, counselling, psychotherapy, counselling psychology, psychiatry, nursing and social work.
