Supervision in Context

A series edited by Peter Hawkins and Robin Shohet.
Published by Open University Press.

Staff in the helping profession are working under increasing amounts of pressure. They are having to balance growing levels of distress, dis-ease and disturbance, while at the same time managing an increasing speed of change in the financing and organisational structures of their employing organisations. Staff will only stay effective at their important work if they are supported and well supervised. Often their supervisors move straight form being a skilled practitioner into a management and supervisory position with no training in the skills that staff supervision requires.

This series is aimed at the increasing number of people who act as trainers, tutors, mentors and supervisors in the helping professions. It is also designed for those who are studying to become a trainer or supervisor and for supervisee, who can use the books to reflect on the many complex issues in their work.

The series is designed to follow on from the success of the best selling title Supervision in the Helping Professions by Peter Hawkins and Robin Shohet. Each book explore the key issues, models and skills for trainer and supervisors in the main areas of the helping professions: social work and community care, the medical and nursing professions, psychotherapy, counselling and mentoring for managers.
