This volume is intended to help practicing therapists and counselors, as well as students of these professions, to explore more fully and systematically the processes of self-improvement in their work and lives. It captures the reader's interest by discussing some of the therapist's personal and professional challenges in a refreshingly honest way. The book deals with a number of standard areas of self-supervision, such as self-monitoring and working with mentors, and provides a framework and a process for examining one's own strengths and weaknesses, then taking steps to improve excellence across a host of domains.
