Supervision in the Helping Professions Summary

Supervision in the Helping Professions by Peter Hawkins

Supervision in the Helping Professions remains a core text in our trainings and we welcome the updates, including the increased focus on ethics and diversity, the discussion of e-enabled modes of supervision and the review of research. What is so encouraging to students, trainers and practitioners is the 'beginner's mind' with which the authors continue to approach the subject, their tireless enthusiasm for enquiry, and their commitment to the learning edge.

The launch of this edition coincides with the launch of the first UKCP Professional Register for Supervisors. The authors have done much to promote the development of supervision, and all future professional trainings in supervision will rely on their wisdom and experience. Key words for this edition are sustainability, resourcing and deeper levels of self reflection - mirroring the movement of our profession which increasingly turns outwards, asking how we can effect societal as well as individual change.
Tree Staunton, Director of Studies, Bath Centre for Psychotherapy and Counselling, and Chair of the Humanistic and Integrative College of UKCP

This book remains a seminal text in supervision. In the fourth edition the authors bring a contemporary perspective to bear on supervision with an emphasis on the wider contextual and cultural contexts of our work as supervisors. I appreciate above all the 'fearless compassion' with which the authors have addressed the challenges that face us as supervisors in a global culture, and at the same time their ongoing stress on integrating the 'emotional and the rational, the personal and the organizational' in a very accessible model of supervision.
Professor Maria Gilbert, Metanoia Institute, West London

This bestselling book provides a comprehensive guide to supervision for professionals across the social care and helping professions, as well as those working in education, coaching and human resources. Thoroughly updated, the book has a new introduction showing how the world context in which helping professions operate has fundamentally changed in the last 25 years and the implications of this for supervision.

The seven-eyed supervision model at the core of the book has been expanded and developed to reflect its use in many professions and different parts of the world. The authors also incorporate viewpoints from other academics and practitioners who have commented on the model. New to this edition:

  • A new chapter on ethics and handling difficult situations in supervision
  • A new chapter and new models of reflective practice
  • New material on training supervisors, including the important area of supervision of supervision
  • Revised chapters on group and team supervision, with new material on supervising team development and team coaching

  • Further practical advice for supervisees on how to recognize, contribute to and ask for good supervision

With contributions from Judy Ryde and Joan Wilmot.
