Group Supervision Summary


Group Supervision: A Guide to Creative Practice by Brigid Proctor

`This book is a most welcome addition to the rapidly growing number of books now available that address aspects of counselling supervision in the British context. To my knowledge, it is the first that deals exclusively with group supervision and it is likely to become a classic text. It provides a comprehensive and, in many ways, inspiring handbook that should prove of enormous help to any individual or organization contemplating setting up group supervision for counsellors and other clinical practitioner' - British Journal of Guidance & Counselling

`This much-awaited book makes a welcome entry into the rather sparse British literature on group supervision' - Counselling at Work

`This is a welcome addition to the literature on counselling supervision. I found it especially stimulating having used various models of group supervision as a senior probation officer, and now using it in a listening post. In both examples the method did not replace individual supervision, but greatly enhanced it....I thank Brigid Proctor for her guidelines for good practice and stimulating ideas for using the potential of groupwork within the supervision process, and recognize it as a really valuable "Sage-like" contribution' - ACCORD

I found it especially stimulating having used various models of group supervision as a Senior Probation Officer, and now using it in listening post.

I thank Brigid Proctor for her guidleines for good practice and stimulating ideas for using the potential of groupwork within the supervision process, and recognize it as a really valuable "Sage-like" contribution' - ACCORD

This practical guide illuminates the tasks, roles and responsibilities of group supervisors and supervisees. Case studies of four groups are developed throughout to illustrate the differences and issues that arise in the process of group supervision.

The first part describes the Group Supervision Alliance Model on which the book is based and identifies four overlapping but distinct types of group: authoritative, participative, co-operative and peer. The second part focuses on the skills of managing each type of group and offers guidelines for making clear agreements and alliances, developing flexible leadership and making sense of group and individual developmental needs. The author also tackles `hot issues' that arise in group supervision and suggests positive ways of encouraging and working with the diversity which groups encompass.

`Anyone who has read previous works by Brigid Proctor will be delighted to see another of her books. And indeed, this book will not disappoint....

As a good supervisor would do, this book encourages the reader to develop their own style and sense of spontaneity in dealing with the differing needs of groups of supervisees' - Counselling and Psychotherapy Journal
