This title is suitable for experienced, newly-qualified and trainee counsellors and psychotherapists and those responsible for their training and development. "An Integrative Approach to Psychotherapy and Supervision" presents an innovative and flexible model for psychotherapy and supervision practice. The model draws on ideas from the psychological traditions of Transactional Analysis, Gestalt theory and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy to develop an integrated approach to working with clients and to developing a supervisor-supervisee relationship that can be adapted to suit the needs of individual personalities and situations. The authors lay out the theory underlying the model, how it relates to existing models of supervision, and demonstrate how the model works in practice using case material to illustrate the range of approaches that can be applied in a given scenario. This book is essential reading for both new and experienced supervisors, as well as those responsible for the training and development of supervisors in counselling and psychotherapy.
