Peer supervision groups, in which psychotherapists meet regularly to give and receive help with difficult cases and other issues in private practice, are an important component of many therapists' professional lives, but only a few journal articles have discussed them. This first and only book on the topic addresses some of the problems of conventional supervision and investigates the experience of being in a peer group. Drawing from the author's own experience and his interviews of thirty-four members of twenty different peer groups, the book describes in detail the varying structures, topics, and interactions in a peer group situation. The author also gives guidelines for organizing and conducting an effective group.

"For decades psychotherapists have found peer supervision groups enriching and meaningful. In this lively and practical book, Kassan presents a comprehensive view of the pros and cons of these groups as well as providing guidelines for setting up effective peer groups. This important book also effectively deals with the larger issue of how we train psychotherapists."—J. Scott Rutan, PhD, CGP, Boston Institute for Psychotherapy

"Kassan offers a glimpse into the vulnerabilities of clinicians. With an extensive review of the literature, he makes a compelling case for peer supervision as a haven for personal and professional development and connection. This book is both informative and inspiring."—Connie Concannon, LCSW, FAGPA, CGP, American Group Psychotherapy Association, UCSF Department of Psychiatry

"I believe this is the first book-length, comprehensive examination of peer supervision groups, an increasingly popular vehicle utilized by mental health professionals to deal with difficulties that arise in their practices, to foster their growth as professionals, and to derive support in what otherwise can be a very lonely profession. Kassan does a wonderful job of making these groups come alive and delineating their attributes; as such, it should be read by all who want to understand their value and their limitations."—Harold Bernard, PhD, American Group Psychotherapy Association, New York University School of Medicine
