"This book presents a competency-based approach to supervision that emphasizes the use of science-informed theory and practice. Without minimizing the complexity of supervision or ignoring the present scientific standing of the field, we posit that the practice of supervision involves identifiable competencies, which can be learned and in turn promote the supervisee's clinical competence through the integration and application of specific knowledge, skills, attitudes, and values. Furthermore, we present four superordinate values that we believe to be integral to supervision and clinical practice: integrity-in-relationship, ethical values-based practice, appreciation of diversity, and science-informed practice. Finally, we advocate for an approach to supervision that recognizes the personal strengths supervisees bring to their education and clinical training and, drawing on principles derived from positive psychology, informs the learning process and leads to increased competence and self-efficacy."

"Supervision plays a central role in the clinical training of mental health professionals. In Clinical Supervision: A Competency-Based Approach (American Psychological Association, 2004), Falender and Shafranske created a comprehensive resource for the supervision of mental health practitioners. In this companion casebook, the editors have enlisted an elite group of contributors to help make the leap from theory and research to the real-life, hands-on implementation of the elements of successful supervision. With expert commentary and detailed excerpts from actual supervisory sessions, the authors describe supervision as process--the process of becoming competent, the process of psychotherapy, and the process of developing as a supervisor. The supervision relationship is examined in detail, and supervision tools are included to help supervisors implement best practices within a competency-based framework. Whether used alone or in conjunction with the earlier volume, the Casebook for Clinical Supervision: A Competency-Based Approach will be the standard resource for supervisory competence for years to come"--Jacket.

"Multiculturalism and Diversity in Clinical Supervision: A Competency-Based Approach" provides a significant, rich, and unique enhancement of the clinical training literature by describing key elements involved in attending to multicultural and sociopolitical differences between supervisors and supervisees, and between supervisees and their clients. Understanding the cultural context of behavior is critical to competent and ethical interventions in all areas of mental health work. Regardless of one's theoretical orientation, it is important to understand how culture and other aspects of identity influence the experiences of distress, dysfunction, strength, and resilience. For supervisors, diversity and multicultural competence includes an understanding and awareness of the many strands of supervisees' and their clients' identities, including sex and gender, race and ethnicity, socioeconomic status, social class, sexual orientation, heritage, immigration and generational experiences, ableness, religion, and spirituality. Such an understanding also involves an awareness of one's own identities and how those influence one's work. We as clinicians must understand how those strands of identity combine for supervisor and supervisee, and for therapist and client, and we must be able to engage in interventions on the basis of that understanding. This book provides invaluable insights into the impact of the multiple identities of each participant in the supervisory and therapeutic processes. It presents models for conducting competency-based multicultural clinical supervision. This volume is an invaluable resource for all supervisors and also for all trainers and providers of mental health services. It provides critical, up-to-date evidence-based information, as well a variety of models with which to teach and learn. It is intellectually stimulating, emotionally moving, and gratifying. I am proud to see this quality product available. It is my hope that readers will be stimulated to learn, inspired to integrate new skills, and encouraged to look honestly at themselves, especially in the context of their work with those different from themselves"--Foreword.

Since clinical supervision has become recognized as a distinct professional practice, competency-based supervision has gained considerable traction internationally. Competency-based supervision enhances accountability and is compatible with evidence-based approaches. Competency-based supervision is defined by supervisor and supervisee collaboratively and explicitly identifying the knowledge, skills and attitudes comprising each clinical competency, determining specific learning strategies, and monitoring and evaluating the development of those. Recommendations for supervision practice are described based on the growing evidence base for practice and responsive to emerging ethical and legal issues.

The complexities of social network ethics and digital dual relationships, such as clients becoming "friends" or "fans" on their therapists’ social media pages are discussed.

First published in 1976, Supervision in Social Work has become an essential text for social work educators and students, detailing the state of the field and the place, function, and challenges of supervision in social work practice. This fifth edition takes into account the sizable number of articles and books published on supervision since 2002. Changes in public health and social welfare policy have intensified concern about the social work supervision of licensed practitioners. Tax and spending limitations at all levels of government, combined with the unfolding effects of welfare reform and managed health care, have increasingly emphasized the need for the efficient and accountable administration of health and social services in the private and public sectors. This edition confronts issues raised by these developments, including budgetary allocation and staff management, the problems of worker burnout and safety, the changing demographics and growing diversity of the supervising workforce, evidence-based and licensure supervision, and performance appraisal.
