Supervision is the cornerstone of clinical training across all types of mental health providers. It facilitates the growth of mental health trainees and maintains the integrity of the field of mental health services by ensuring the competency of clinicians. However, the process can be complex and potentially confusing for both supervisors and trainees at any stage of their development or post-licensure career. Utilizing strength-based approaches is crucial to the success of supervision. This workbook facilitates a collaborative and strength-based approach to clinical supervision that both supervisors and trainees can use during the entire course of supervision, or for specific goals related to supervision. Each chapter of this workbook contains information and activities specific to both the trainee and supervisor to facilitate dialogue about individual and combined strengths, areas for growth, and goals for collaborative work.

This is an essential start-to-finish guide addressing the entire supervision process, from preparing for the first session to conducting the last session, and everything in between.

Reviews and Endorsements

"Heffner and Cowan have offered the field a well-written and well-conceptualized guide for the practice of clinical supervision. The workbook covers a lot of ground in a highly accessible and helpful manner. The content will not only ground new as well as experienced supervisors but will help to make supervision more transparent to trainees as well." - Janine M. Bernard, PhD, LMHC, Professor Emeritus Syracuse University.

"This book is an excellent resource! The authors provide comprehensive guidelines for ethical supervision, as well as practical guidance and worksheets. The book is based in a thorough review of the supervision literature, with an emphasis on strength-based feedback and the supervisory relationship. Highly recommended for both supervisors and therapists training to become supervisors." - Tony Rousmaniere, PsyD, Clinical Faculty, University of Washington; coauthor of The Cycle of Excellence: Using Deliberate Practice to Improve Supervision and Training

"A unique aspect of this workbook are the concrete and practical activities that encourage supervisor-supervisee communication around key issues, such as giving and receiving feedback. These activities can foster genuine collaboration around the growth and development of both supervisor and supervisee." - L. DiAnne Borders, PhD, ACS, LMHC, NCC, Editor, The Clinical Supervisor; Co-Founder, Clinical Supervision Research Collaborative; Excellence Professor, Department of Counseling and Educational Development, The University of North Carolina at Greensboro.

"I am very impressed with The Strength-based Clinical Supervision Workbook, as it is a much needed practitioner’s guide to supervision from the perspective of both the supervisor and the supervisee’s training. The integration of evidence-based practice throughout this work makes it an excellent and practical resource for training programs and supervisor development. I highly recommend this user-friendly guide to supervision." - Amy Wasserbauer, PhD, Assistant Director, ASU Counseling Services.
