This book presents integrative supervision applicable to integrative and single-system psychotherapy alike.
Distinctive features include its synthesis of supervisory methods aligned with multiple theoretical traditions, a research-informed fit of supervision to the individuality of the supervisee, its insistence on frequent feedback from both clients and trainees, and a modeling of the philosophical pluralism and pragmatic flexibility of integration itself. In reviewing videotaped therapy sessions, integrative supervisors offer key insights into common problems, demonstrate how to adjust treatment to clients’ transdiagnostic needs, and guide trainees to clinical competence.
Includes transcripts from actual supervision sessions and commentaries from the authors’ companion DVD, Integrative Psychotherapy Supervision.
