Considering how much experience there now is in providing supervisor training in the UK, relatively little has been written about it. This book aims to create a lively and readable resource that will be informative and inspirational for those planning for the future of training for supervisors of counsellors, or who create, teach on or apply for supervisor training. The structure and content will invite reflection on the training issues that the authors address. It is intended to be consciously forward looking in a period of rapid development, and is designed to highlight differences between providers as well as the approaches and ideas they share. It is the work of many authors, all of whom are or have been involved in supervisor training in the UK. The book should also be of interest to colleagues involved in training supervisors in other contexts and allied professions: social work, medical and nursing professions, coaching, and teaching. It spans a range of theoretical approaches to supervisor training, and authors thus inevitably write from quite different basic assumptions about supervision. They call on a huge range of published resources, many only available in journal articles within their particular modality that have not entered the mainstream. One great gift is thus the lists of references for each chapter.

Reviews and Endorsements

'The book does admirably what it says it will do: create a lively and readable response for those planning supervision training. It combines the old with the new; looking at traditional forms of supervision training combined with how online e-training can contribute to that training. While making no attempt offer an integrated and universally acceptable training for all supervisors, it will still be a "must" book for the myriad trainers and tutors on the over 80 supervision training programmes in Britain. Its philosophy is to enjoy and take pleasure in the many different approaches to supervisor training while holding a rigour and excellence in recruiting, training, assessing and supporting supervisors. The book is written and presented in a style that resembles a three-way parallel process: a supervisory attitude that imbues the writing, leading to a supervisory process that permeates the training, which in turn impacts supervisor trainees to adopt the same flexibility and openness.'
- Michael Carroll PhD, Visiting Industrial Professor, University of Bristol

'Penny Henderson's book offers us a welcome and much needed edited volume on aspects of supervisor training. Individuals central to the development of supervision theory and practice in the UK - including Brigid Proctor and Francesca Inskipp - bring conceptual clarity and pragmatic resources to supervisor training and development. The book offers key material on contemporary supervision - including online and e-learning supervision - and the range of chapters provides an invaluable portfolio or 'toolkit' of resources for supervision trainees and trainers. Research and developments in UK supervision are, thankfully, beginning to increase; what Penny Henderson and her chapter authors provide us with are accessible concepts and practice resources that are sorely needed. I believe this book will be a valuable resource for supervisor training programmes'
- Dr Lynne Gabriel, Chair, British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy

'A valuable and wide ranging addition to an important series on an important subject.'
