Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Shawn M. Taylor, PhD (Northwestern Memorial Hospital)
Description: This edited volume contains contributions from 52 authors considered experts in their domain of psychotherapy supervision. The chapters are divided into six main content areas, including conceptual and methodological foundations, approaches to psychotherapy supervision, training models for psychotherapy supervision, specialized forms and modes, researching psychotherapy supervision, and professional, ethical, and legal issues. Although the book is a first edition, it serves as a comprehensive update of Allen Hess's 1980 Wiley publication, Psychotherapy Supervision, Theory, Research, and Practice.
Purpose: The book is intended provide a current examination and review of the field of psychotherapy supervision, with an emphasis on theory, training, research, and clinical application. As stated by the editor, its purpose is "to provide an informed and informative treatment of many of the key areas that have been and continue to be so central to the enterprise of psychotherapy supervision," and to do so while giving "more emphasis to supervision research."
Audience: The editor accurately claims that the book is targeted toward mental health professionals and advanced graduate students, and it appears suitable for a variety of subspecialty areas, including clinical, counseling, and school psychology, and psychiatry and social work. Many of the chapters will be of interest to seasoned professionals and those with a particular interest in quality supervision and training.
Features: The book is well organized and contains many relevant figures and tables. Thorough author and subject indexes are provided, and each chapter includes pertinent references.
Assessment: The editor of this fine handbook has gathered together a skilled and wide-ranging group of experts, thus providing a first-rate, scholarly resource that will likely become the reference of choice for those interested in the theory, research, and practice of supervision. The book is readable and often engaging, and seems quite valuable in the diversity of approaches and applications it presents.

Patterned after the "Handbook of Psychotherapy and Behavior Change", this text concentrates on clinical supervision, with contributions from leading voices in contemporary psychological practice. Eleven chapters are devoted to supervision as practiced in each major therapeutic orientation, including psychoanalytic, psychodynamic, interpersonal, behavioral, gestalt and integrative. They discuss training models for supervision; professional, ethical, and legal issues; appropriate times to shift between mentor, lecturer, and colleague roles; and successful supervision with various outpatient populations, such as children, adolescents, elders, families, and groups.
