The second edition of this ground-breaking book continues the mission of its predecessor: to provide a "best principles" and "best practices" overview of the counseling supervision process, one that is firmly rooted in the recent explosion of empirical research in this field. Sponsored by the Association for Counselor Education and Supervision (ACES), the presentation is targeted primarily at master's-level practitioners who want "how-to" applications of the research literature (with examples) rather than a comprehensive review of the supervision literature. Like the first edition, this revised book is also a useful supplement for more academic texts used for doctoral-level instruction in counseling supervision.
Key changes in this new edition include greater attention to multicultural and diversity issues and new chapters on group supervision and on technology. Also new are discussion questions and vignettes meant to enhance application of key concepts in each chapter as well as more sample materials and forms for practice.

"The book is the best for beginning supervisors who want an overview of supervision, good documentation forms, supervisor questions, and suggestions for supervision. It is also good for those who are seasoned supervisors and want to supplement the book in practicum courses with personal experiences."
"Borders' and Brown's practice oriented guide in counseling supervision is a must-have tool for both supervisees and supervisors. One notable facet of this revision is its expansion of multicultural and diversity issues. Of particular merit is the authors' discussion of the multicultural influences on the supervisory relationship and their inclusion of concrete questions and activities that supervisors can utilize with their supervisees to increase cultural awareness."
