As evidenced by the recent proliferation of books about positive psychology, there is a growing realization about the importance of focusing on an individual's strengths. Yet there has been little written about positive psychology that applies this approach to training and supervision. To fill this void, Strengths-Based Clinical Supervision combines the principles of positive psychology with research on effective supervision and training from various disciplines along with the characteristics of effective clinical supervisors.
The text is designed for use with masters and doctoral level trainees and is formatted to accommodate a 16-week semester framework. It emphasizes practical applications and provides examples of questions and prompts to be used in supervision sessions. Each chapter features case studies and discussion questions to encourage retention of the material. Key Features:
- Integrates the basic principles of positive psychology with those of effective supervision and training
- Emphasizes practical applications of positive psychology to clinical supervision across multiple disciplines
- Includes examples of questions and prompts to be used in actual supervision sessions
- Formatted for a 16-week semester framework for masters and doctoral level students
