Description : This practical guide provides support for mental health practitioners as they develop their approach to clinical supervision, drawing on the authors’ extensive experience of counseling and psychotherapy to bring readers into the "real world" of clinical supervision. Chapters introduce the essential responsibilities and tasks of a clinical supervisor and place emphasis on the development of a Competence-Oriented Model of Clinical Supervision, upon which a philosophical foundation for supervision can be built. Integrating up-to-date research with case vignettes and practical resources, the text discusses philosophies of clinical supervision and explores themes that often define a supervisor’s contextual world, from professional ethics and legal issues to the personal development of both the supervisor and the supervisee. Affirming and encouraging professional development as well as identifying a range of common challenges, Clinical Supervision in the Real World is a key resource for aspiring clinical supervisors looking to build their own philosophy of supervision.

Just prior to presenting us with a thoughtful array of "post graduate options" for further learning and development, Bodenheimer explores the dimensions and dilemmas associated with still-controversial subjects like clients' transference and clinicians' countertransference, including feelings of love. Whether just entering the world of a master's-prepared social worker or having spent decades as an agency-based or private practitioner, an educator, or an administrator in the social services, spending time with Real World Clinical Social Work is a real gift to yourself and everyone you serve.

Jonathan B.

Dr. Bodenheimer befriends the beginning clinician with this incredibly personable and accessible book and says, "Sure, you do." Dr. Bodenheimer uses herself as a vehicle for connection with the reader, and she speaks directly to that inner voice with compassion, understanding, and guidance.

Description : There have been many recent developments in the research, theory, and practice of supervision in counseling, but few reliable resources are available for practitioners seeking to expand their knowledge in these areas. Culbreth and Brown have assembled a group of leading researchers, scholars, and professionals in the field to present a collection of chapters on the state of the art in clinical supervision. These chapters provide the reader with fresh approaches to core topics, such as multicultural competence, religion and spirituality, and the training of supervisors, as well as discussions of new areas of study. Alternative methods to conducting supervision are explored with expressive art techniques and the uses of narrative therapy and concepts of emotional intelligence. Triadic supervision and the use of the newest developments in technology are also considered. Current and future supervisors will no doubt find the innovative and informative strategies described in this book invaluable in their work with supervisees.

Description : Over the past forty years, the criminal justice system in the United States has engaged in a very expensive policy failure, attempting to punish its way to public safety, with dismal results. So-called "tough on crime" policies have not only failed to effectively reduce crime, recidivism, and victimization but also created an incredibly inefficient system that routinely fails the public, taxpayers, crime victims, criminal offenders, their families, and their communities. Strategies that focus on behavior change are much more productive and cost effective for reducing crime than punishment, and in this book, William R. Kelly discusses the policy, process, and funding innovations and priorities that the United States needs to effectively reduce crime, recidivism, victimization, and cost. He recommends proactive, evidence-based interventions to address criminogenic behavior; collaborative decision making from a variety of professions and disciplines; and a focus on innovative alternatives to incarceration, such as problem-solving courts and probation. Students, professionals, and policy makers alike will find in this comprehensive text a bracing discussion of how our criminal justice system became broken and the best strategies by which to fix it.
