Clinical Supervision: A Competency-Based Approach is a resource for training and supervising mental health practitioners. Supervision has for years been central to training psychologists and other mental health professionals in clinical settings, yet supervisors have worked with little or no framework or guidance. Supervisors need no longer tolerate this state of affairs. This presentation of theory and research is tailored to contemporary practice and training requirements, with an emphasis on the identification and development of specific competencies in both trainees and their supervisors. This book guides readers through a science-informed process of supervision that clearly delineates the competencies required for good practice. The authors have geared this approach to mental health professionals who currently provide supervision in academic, training, and treatment settings as well as to students and practitioners who are studying supervision research and theory for the first time. Clinical Supervision provides guidance on both clinical and supervisory competencies and accounts for recent legislative initiatives mandating training in supervision.

The authors present a resource text for mental health professionals currently providing supervision in academic, training, and treatment situations, and for students and practitioners studying supervision research for the first time. The authors critically examine the theoretical and empirical literature and present a competency-based model of clinical supervision. Coverage includes effective practices in supervision, technical competence, personal factors, the therapeutic and supervisory alliance, diversity competence, ethical and legal responsibilities and case management, and evaluation.
