The Next Generation of Supervision Practices in Clinical Settings
Author Jeffrey K. Edwards reframes the model of supervision, management, and leadership in clinical practice using an approach that focuses on collaboration and strength-building, with supervisees as competent stakeholders in their work with clients. Deconstructing the usual top-down hierarchy, this text leads the reader through the full range of supervision practices, from the clinical aspects to the administration of all organizations where clinicians are trained, supervised, and encouraged to excel and grow. Edwards starts with a review of the traditional clinical supervision model (two full chapters) and moves on to his strengths-based model, which covers agency and organizational work—all examined using a contemporary, social construction approach.
Very useful for teaching second and third years on the BSc nursing programme. I hope to use this on post reg programmes for health care professionals.
A great book to help practitioners focus on quality supervision.
I am still considering it and need to compare it to other texts as well.
supports the progression of students into qualified nursing career. is a useful guide on top of health board provision of what effective supervision is in clinical practice
Very important text which provides in depth understanding of strength based perspectives
Course not specifically about "clinical" supervision.
This is a well written and well thought out text that will appeal to learners.
Practitioners and supervisors with a wide range of experience will be able to make good use of this text.
I have recommended this text to students who are completing four year B Sc nursing and about to undertake 36 week internship programme prior to registration. The advantage of this text is its adoption of a strengths based approach which is the foundation of my teaching approach for practice intervention in mental health setting. The intention of recommending this text is to provide students with supplemental reading and future direction relating to professional supervision.
Probable use Fall 2013
Useful for group and individual supervision practice. Informative and easy to navigate through the chapters.
