Handbook of Counseling Supervision.
Borders, L. DiAnne; Leddick, George R.
This handbook is one of four handbooks developed for preservice and inservice counselor preparation and professional development. It was developed as a practical guide which will provide resources for counselor educators to use with students in practicum and internship settings in their training programs. It is also appropriate for use by instructors as a textbook or supplementary material in supervision courses or workshops. The handbook provides an introduction to the procedures and process of counseling supervision; to the models, approaches, and interventions of supervision; and to the special concerns of the novice supervisor. It leads readers through a sequential process of conducting supervision. It begins with a self-assessment of supervision-related skills, then proceeds to an assessment of the supervisee, establishing goals and a contract, choosing interventions, dealing with process, issues, considering legal and ethical concerns, and evaluating the supervisee. A final section helps supervisors evaluate their own development and performance. An epilogue summarizes literature on the beginning supervisor and describes instructional approaches for the instructor/supervisor of novice supervisors. Individual chapters focus on: (1) assessing supervision knowledge and skills; (2) initial supervisory sessions; (3) supervision goals; (4) choosing and implementing supervision interventions; (5) supervisory relationships and process issues; (6) supervisee evaluation; (7) ethical and legal considerations; and (8) supervisor evaluation. References are included. (NB)
