Virginia Kelly is a contributing author, "Mandated Supervision: Trouble for an External Consulting Clinical Supervisor." Book description: Sharpen your supervision skills with this book that goes to the heart of what constitutes good practice. Providing essential information and guidance for clinicians on critical aspects of supervision, counselor educators and practitioners respond to case incidents in which a supervisor or supervisee is facing an ethical, moral, legal, or clinical dilemma. Thirty-three incidents addressing supervision issues that commonly occur in chemical dependency, community counseling, and school settings are presented. Topics covered in this text include: substance abuse recovery concerns, counter-transference, parallel process, relapse, power differentials in the supervisory relationship, working alliances between supervisors and supervisees, managing conflict, sexuality issues, dual relationships, ethical decision making, confidentiality, duty to warn, supervisee evaluation, technology use, cultural competence, supervision contracts, group counseling, and counselor training. This book is an important contribution for those concerned with the accountability and effectiveness of mental health service delivery and represents a significant step toward high quality supervision. Helpful across all levels of experience—this is a perfect handbook for clinical supervisors, clinical directors, and supervisees in the field, as well as an outstanding teaching tool for master’s or doctoral level courses in supervision.
