Supervisory Relationships: Exploring the Human Element.
Kaiser, Tamara L.
This book focuses on the supervisor-supervisee relationship as it occurs in social service and counseling agencies. It teaches supervisors and supervisees to anticipate the workplace issues they may face and provides valuable insights about what really goes on in the clinical supervisory relationship. The book contains many diverse, real-life vignettes gathered from supervisors and supervisees in a variety of clinical settings. The book is written to benefit both supervisors and supervisees and focuses on the interpersonal issues that can either impede or enhance effective supervision. Many of the examples in the book relate to cross-cultural issues. The five chapters of the book address the following topics: (1) the importance of relationship; (2) power and authority; (3) power--dual roles in supervision; (4) shared meaning; and (5) trust. Each chapter contains discussion, vignettes, a summary, and questions to promote critical thinking. Contains 147 references. (KC)
