Those new to being supervised will find this a useful guide on making the best use of it. [It also] provides useful frameworks to help supervisors map out their strengths and areas for development; would be helpful for any therapist venturing into management and/or supervision.
This is a really useful book and certainly relatable to many different areas of work, of which supervision is a part of. It is clear, easy to read and would recommend for anyone with an interests within this area.
Readability ease for students. Relevant to the module content.
Though written primarily for a social work audience, this book has a number of more widely applicable uses.
The book covers a number of things (in its own way) you might find in a number of supervision texts (eg components of supervision), but I'd commend it for these things:
the layout and organisation were helpful;
the chapter on 'Power and Authority';
'Judgements of Solomon' (difficult decisions);
'Games we all Play'; and finally
'The Needs of the Supervisor' (hurray!)
This was an interesting read, not least because (as a psychologist) it was helpful to read something produced by someone who's been a social worker. I liked generally the many ways practice could be seen to be mirrored in supervision and was particularly taken by the chapter on Power and Authority.

This is a great addition to the SW literature on supervision. Beckett covers key areas in an accessible format - really helpful to those new to supervision, such as PEs
