The most critical and influential relationship affecting one’s growth as a mental health professional is the relationship between the clinician and the supervisor. Good supervisors breed good therapists. This book goes beyond facts and figures to provide an innovative perspective on the supervision process. Through contributions by seven supervisees and the supervisor they all shared, readers are offered a rare glimpse into what takes place during the supervision hour.

This book not only offers insight into the elements integral to effective supervision, but also teaches about the supervisory relationship. With contributors from various disciplines, theoretical orientations, and cultures, it shows how the supervisee and supervisor are able to navigate these differences while still gaining the most from supervision. Topics that are covered include cultural competence in multicultural supervision and remote supervision when it is conducted between clinicians in different countries, as well as an original study by the authors on the experiences of supervisees during the global Covid-19 pandemic and the transition to remote supervision.

For mental health professionals who are training to be supervisors or experienced supervisors looking to improve their skills, this book will serve as an invaluable resource for professional development.
