This is the thoroughly revised edition of the groundbreaking, definitive text for supervisors in substance abuse counseling. When it was originally published by Lexington in 1993, the book was the first to synthesize the various approaches and techniques of clinical supervision. The "blended model" of supervision offered easy-to-follow guidelines on supervisory contracting, observation, case presentation, modeling, feedback, intervention, and evaluation. In the years since the first edition (and the subsequent paperback reprint JB published in 1998), the author has gathered fresh, new data to update the blended model, which is presented throughout this revision. Also, since the previous edition, the role of the supervior has changed. In the wake of the managed care revolution and several new federal and state regulations, supervisors find themselves absorbed in conformity and compliance issues, financial management, various legal issues, and the completion of an endless array of mandated forms. These, in addition to assuring the clinical knowledge and skill of their counselors, are part of a supervisors new job description. This revisions deals with all of these issues and how to balance them and assure quality treatment.In addition, there is a new Introduction, a new final chapter on current and future trends in alcohol and drug abuse counseling, and the bibliography is "the most complete and current bibliography...in the field of clinical supervision." The back matter includes assessment forms, evaluation letters, and development plans in template form for supervisors to use.
