This clearly written, practical handbook describes an innovative and successful approach to individual, group, and peer supervision that is suitable for use in any environment (clinical, corporate, educational, health, governmental, community): positive supervision.

Positive supervision focuses on what actually works instead of on problems and on supervisees’ strengths rather than on their deficits. The task of supervisors using this approach is – unlike the more traditional problemsolving – to create solutions with their supervisees and to teach them to apply the same approach when working with their own clients.

Essential reading for all supervisors, this book introduces a new form of supervision, based on positive psychology and solution-focused brief therapy, that is shorter, more positive and hopeful, and more cost-effective than traditional methods.


What supervisees say:

“In traditional supervision I learned from the ‘sharp minds’ of my supervisors; in positive supervision I learned to use my own ‘sharp mind.’ This helps me to become more independent and more effective in creating and supporting change.”

“My supervisor taught me the power of an optimistic, realistic, and hopeful approach. Positive supervision invited me to reflect on what I want to achieve and how I can rely on my own competencies and strengths. I was encouraged to explore what I had already achieved in working with my clients, what works, what I want to continue doing, and what I would like to do differently.”

“Suddenly I realized I had more competencies than I previously thought I had. By experiencing what positive supervision does to you, I became instantly excited to also use this approach in the treatments with my clients.”

“This supervision gives me a sense of empowerment. I do hope that other supervisees will experience the same as I did through this book.”
