Book Description

Integrating Neurocounseling in Clinical Supervision provides an indispensable framework for understanding supervision using neuroscience. Chapters explore a range of topics, from basic neuroanatomy to the complexities of the default mode network. Beginning with overviews of supervision and of common challenges and ethical concerns, the book presents five supervision models, allowing the supervisor to select the best fit for each supervisee and each question. By combining supervision theory, practical applications, discussion questions, and case studies and demonstrations, the authors prepare counselors to be more intentional about brain functions to increase the efficacy of supervision. New video demonstrations available on the companion website emphasize client outcomes for each of the five supervision models and one group counseling scenario, connecting directly to chapter content and demonstrating the major elements of each model.

"This innovative text on clinical supervision weaves neuroscience concepts into each chapter to provide a holistic overview of how neuroscience can inform supervision practice. Consideration is given to all aspects of supervisory practice, including assessing supervisee brain states, attending to negative implicit biases, and examining executive function. The additional resources are a highlight, especially the video demonstrating the practical application of five supervision theories. The text is a must-have for current and soon-to-be clinical supervisors."—Thom Field, PhD, LMHC, assistant professor of psychiatry at Boston University School of Medicine

"Russell-Chapin and Chapin continue to extend the infusion of neuroscience in the helping professions with this new text, which eloquently aligns existing supervision approaches with innovative theory and research in various neuroscience disciplines. This approach provides supervisors with a neuro-informed approach that explores the underlying mechanisms of existing supervisory practice while extending this knowledge with new conceptualizations of the mechanisms influencing successful supervisory relationships. As a supervisor, this will be a go-to resource that connects innovative theory to practice!"—Eric Beeson, PhD, LPC, NCC, core faculty in the [email protected] program at Northwestern University

"This fascinating textbook adds a rich component that strengthens what we know about integrated neurocounseling and clinical supervision. Client conceptualization is enhanced with the addition of neurocounseling concepts. The videos are an excellent way to showcase multiple models of clinical supervision in action with Dr. Lori Russell-Chapin and several supervisees. This text is an asset to building strong and necessary clinical supervision in therapy and is a must have."—Carrie Alexander-Albritton, PhD, NCC, LPC, CADC, professor of counselor education at Western Illinois University-Quad Cities
