This new text, with a unique interactive and personal perspective, addresses topics essential to becoming an effective supervisor, emphasizing the tools and skills students will need to supervise others in a variety of settings. Throughout, the authors discuss ethics and professional codes and the relevant literature, and they offer suggestions on how to approach the various cases presented in the text. They also cover topics not examined by other supervision texts, such as writing letters of recommendation, managing crisis situations, and understanding multicultural competencies in supervision. The work of the contributing supervisors and the personal perspectives of the authors complement the book's practical and user-friendly approach.
