Clinical Supervision Made Easy

This book has three major strengths: First, it promotes a generic supervision method that can be applied by nurses, counsellors, supervisors of support staff or volunteers alike.

Second, the book’s first-person writing style makes it easy to read – as with all great textbooks, you become engrossed in the material and learning is not a chore.

Third, the many exercises, tools and examples from the author’s practice mean that, as well as a text book, you are purchasing a ‘how to’ manual that can influence your work immediately.

All of these factors make the book accessible for someone new to supervision, and it would be useful in a library in institutions where nursing and supervision are taught.

But this is more than a student text. There is enough here, especially in its chapter on consulting in organisations, to broaden how experienced supervisors think about their work.
