Supervising Counsellors is a practical and insightful guide to the responsibilities facing all those involved in supervising practitioners and trainees. Drawing together contributions and new research from those at the forefront of supervisory practice, this book makes essential reading for both qualified and trainee supervisors. Part One defines the supervisor's clinical, legal and ethical responsibilities, and clearly sets out the law and professional codes relating to supervision. Part Two examines issues that arise for supervisors working in different contexts: organizations; training; primary care; and some of the wider issues concerning supervision, and highlights in particular the expectations of supervisees and the role of supervisors in ensuring that clients are t discriminated against.
My training in counselling began in 1974. The early part of my training provided a broad overview of humanistic counselling, but it was the Diploma in Student Counselling at London University, a two year part time course in psychodynamic counselling, that provided the theoretical base on which my career has been built. The MSc in Psychotherapy at Warwick University consolidated my learning and launched my research career. The Institute of Group Analysis Introductory Course, organised through Warwick University sharpened my knowledge of group work and institutional dynamics.
