Practitioners working in the helping professions realise the importance of supervision as a space for: reflection; compassionate inquiry; and continuing professional development. This book presents examples of good practice which will help readers to enhance their own supervisory relationships.
Robin Shohet brings together supervisors from the fields of consultancy, education, coaching, psychotherapy, youth work and homeopathy, many of whom have been supervising for over 20 years. The contributors explain why supervision continues to be just as important as when they first started, and describe how and why they have managed to stay passionate about their chosen career. The book features numerous case examples to illustrate the different perspectives, demonstrating that supervision is essential and rewarding in a variety of professions.
Passionate Supervision is a valuable resource for anyone working in the helping professions, for whom supervision is an integral part of their work.

Shohet, a member of the Scottish spiritual community Findhorn, brings together supervisors from the fields of consultancy, education, psychotherapy, youth work, and medicine, many of whom have been supervising for over 29 years. The contributors explain why supervision continues to be just as important as when they first started, and many impart a spiritual perspective when describing how and why they have managed to stay passionate about their chosen career. -- Book News
This is a book that unashamedly brings love, spirit and soul into the heart of the supervision process but does so without becoming sanctimonious or precious. We see this through the various heart-felt experiences and stories of the different helping professionals that Robin Shohet has brought together -- from the Foreword by Peter Hawkins, author of Supervision in the Helping Professions
