The diversity of the contexts used to consider the issue of supervision with background and overview material make this more than a book on supervision. It is rich in source material as well as sample contracts, training exercises and record sheets...a useful resource for anyone involved in supervision whether giving it or receiving it.
The collection of essays contained in this book provide much food for thought...also contains some useful exercises for those in the process of building, or perhaps retrieving, good supervisory relationships...the book will be useful to any senior probation officer under pressure looking for ways to make effective use of the time they have available for supervision.
Jacki Pritchard is to be congratulated on conceiving this much needed collection of essays on supervision...a very welcome contribution to a subject which has been much neglected in Britain.
This book presents valuable and easily assimilated information...it includes practical advice, exercises and guidance for workers and managers involved in a supervisory relationship... The chapter on the supervision of social services managers should be essential reading for those in senior manager positions.
