Clinical Perspectives on Psychotherapy Supervision is the first book to examine the role of the supervisor—one of the most important teaching tools in psychotherapy—from multiple perspectives. Written by experts from virtually every major aspect of supervision, this book gives a clear picture of the many challenges involved in supervising, and how these challenges are best met.

Richly illustrated with clinical vignettes, Clinical Perspectives on Psychotherapy Supervision explores theories of supervision, reviews the recent literature, and offers guidelines for practice.

Clinical Perspectives on PsychotherapySupervision examines supervision from a variety of perspectives, including

• the type of therapy (group, family, behavioral, psychodynamic)
• the type of patient (psychotic, crisis)
• the context (legal, ethical, cultural, gender)
• the vantage of the supervisee
• the vantage of the development of the supervisor
• the perspective of failed supervision
