Book Description

The classic edition of this groundbreaking book includes a new preface from the authors discussing developments in the field since the handbook’s initial publication. Chapters provide an overview of best principles and best practices in 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 book is targeted primarily at master's-level practitioners who want practical, how-to applications of the research literature rather than a comprehensive review of the supervision literature. It's also a useful supplement for more academic texts used for doctoral-level instruction in counseling supervision.

"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's 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."
