A Different Wisdom: Reflections on Supervision Practice
"Supervision is first and foremost a practical activity, and this unusual book provides readers with many accounts of practice issues for supervisors, interwoven with references from reflection and research by the leading UK authors and some American research. It follows a timeline from inexperience and beginnings to retirement, exploring practicalities and the juicy realities of personal and professional development. The focus throughout is on what can be learned through careful reflective practice. This requires the practitioner to sustain curiosity and an open mind, to meet supervisees who are different and who come for support, guidance, and commentary on ethical dilemmas. By discussion of professional mistakes it invites readers to notice the impact of human limitations. Consultative supervision is an important relationship for many practitioners, and is increasingly valued by members of other professions such as those allied to medicine, teachers, social workers and managers. This book provides inviting prompts for readers to consider how to integrate personal and professional life to increase resilience in emotionally demanding roles. The author's background in adult and higher education leads her to emphasise the learning that comes through development of practice wisdom in collegial supervisory conversations. Research has emphasised the importance of the relationship for effective supervision. This book combines an interest in creating and sustaining the relationship, with extending the development of the supervisee. It is unique in exploration of the pragmatics of practice, whilst describing the normative roles and tasks inherent in the part of supervisory work that focuses on the protection of the client."--Publisher's website.
