Supervision Strategies for the First Practicum. Second Edition.
Neufeldt, Susan Allstetter
This second edition offers step-by-step instruction for supervisors of novice counselors. The book is divided into three major parts. The first part, "Introduction and Ethical Framework," contains an introduction in which commitment to supervisor and counselor development is discussed. Chapter 2 provides ethical guidelines for supervisors as they work with counselors in training. The second part, "Supervision Strategies and Case Conceptualization," explores supervision strategies and the case conceptualization model. Chapter 3 describes basic supervision strategies, illustrating each with a vignette. A description of a model of case conceptualization and advanced supervision strategies that combine teaching, counseling, and consulting function are included in chapter 4. The final section, "Practicum Course Outline and Supervision Modules," provides the setting for supervision: a practicum course for first-year counseling students. The first term, outlined in chapter 5, focuses on building a relationship with clients, and delineates plans for each week. It is suggested that each class should include and describe weekly sessions in detail. Vignettes illustrate supervision in action. The second term, outlined in chapter 6, focuses on conceptualization of cases and the process of counseling. Contains 154 references. (Author/MKA)
