"With the expansion of psychological therapy services within the UK, it will be essential that therapists receive quality supervision to ensure that the public experience safe and effective therapies. This second edition is a major revision and should be considered essential reading for those involved in expanding access to psychological therapy services. As well as providing a highly accessible overview of clinical supervision, it also has been made contemporary by embracing issues around case management and some of the technological challenges to supervision. A source of much excellent and practical advice, written in an engaging and creative style." - Professor Graham Turpin - Director, Clinical Psychology Unit, University of Sheffield.
"This book is readable and useful to practitioners in many contexts, including mental health nursing, counselling and psychotherapy, psychology and social work. In my view this puts Scaife in a quartet with Inskipp and Proctor, Hawkins and Shohet and Page and Wosket as the four 21st century UK resources for supervisors. I shall encourage my colleagues, supervisees and trainee supervisors to read it." - Penny Henderson, Therapy Today, December, 2008
