In Search of Supervision Summary

In Search of Supervision by JACOBS

Following the success of In Search of a Therapist, this final book in the series provides a unique window into the supervisory process. It takes a session, with background information, from the editor's own work with a long-term client, Ruth and presents the dilemmas faced by the therapist to five supervisors - each one from very different therapeutic traditions:

* communicative psychotherapy
* self-psychology
* person-centred psychotherapy
* cognitive-behavioural therapy
* family therapy

In Search of Supervision offers the first real insight into the process of supervision of an actual session and enables counsellors and therapists to see how different orientations or schools of therapy and counselling react to and understand the same client and therapist. This fascinating book ends with a final chapter in which the therapist and client comment on the impact of the five supervisors on the work of their therapy together.

In Search of Supervision will be of interest to a wide range of counsellors and therapists, not only those working as or training as supervisors, but all those who experience supervision.
