This reader-friendly and stimulating volume, indispensable to anyone interested in supervision from a systemic perspective, emerged from a conference organised jointly by the Institute of Family Therapy and the Tavistock Clinic in London. It is focused on developments within supervisions and reflects the increasing need for clinical supervisors in advanced level family training courses. The central theme of the book is the application of systemic thinking to the field of supervision. The complexities of topics involved in this area are fully engaged by the many contributors. The book is organised into four main sections, each ending with a useful and unifying commentary from the editors.
