Supervision is the cornerstone of clinical training across all types of mental health providers. It facilitates the growth of mental health trainees and maintains the integrity of the field of mental health services by ensuring the competency of clinicians. However, the process can be complex and potentially confusing for both supervisors and trainees at any stage of their development or post-licensure career. Utilizing strength-based approaches is crucial to the success of supervision. This workbook facilitates a collaborative and strength-based approach to clinical supervision that both supervisors and trainees can use during the entire course of supervision, or for specific goals related to supervision. Each chapter of this workbook contains information and activities specific to both the trainee and supervisor to facilitate dialogue about individual and combined strengths, areas for growth, and goals for collaborative work. This is an essential start-to-finish guide addressing the entire supervision process, from preparing for the first session to conducting the last session, and everything in between.

"Through the frame of positive psychology, Wade and Jones solidify a next step in conceptualization and practice of supervision. This expansive view of historical, narrative, literary, and theoretical approaches is a significant addition to the supervision literature." Carol Falender, PhD, University of California, Los Angeles "For many of us in mental health fields our "training" in supervision occurred on the job. We mirrored the examples of positive supervision we experienced or tried to avoid the pitfalls we associated with negative supervision experiences. But being a competent and proficient supervisor is far more than emulation or avoidance of past experience. It is a vital aspect of our jobs and requires a pedagogical approach steeped in best practices and evidence. Strength Based Clinical Supervision offers a comprehensive approach to providing sound clinical supervision and should be part of any training program for clinicians who will one day supervise, mentor, or instruct anyone entering the field of mental health services." Carrie Fleider, MSW, LISW-S, Assistant Director for Training, Counseling and Consultation Services, The Ohio State University As evidenced by the recent proliferation of books about positive psychology, there is a growing realization about the importance of focusing on an individual's strengths. Yet there has been little written about positive psychology that applies this approach to training and supervision. To fill this void, Strengths-Based Clinical Supervision combines the principles of positive psychology with research on effective supervision and training from various disciplines along with the characteristics of effective clinical supervisors. Designed for use with courses on clinical supervision in psychology, counseling, social work, the book is also an ideal resource for supervisors of Masterís and Doctoral-level trainees as well as licensed professionals. It emphasizes practical applications and provides examples of questions and prompts to be used in supervision sessions. Chapters feature practical applications of key concepts as well as discussion questions to encourage retention of the material. Key Features: Integrates the basic principles of positive psychology with those of effective supervision and training Emphasizes practical applications of positive psychology to clinical supervision across multiple disciplines Includes examples of questions and prompts to be used in actual supervision sessions

Moving away from the usual medical-modeled framework of mental health focused on problems, Strengths-Based Supervision in Clinical Practice by Jeffrey K. Edwards takes a postmodern, social construction approach, looking for and amplifying strengths and encouraging stakeholders to use them. Based on research in brain science, as well as from the Information Age/Connectivity Age thinking, the book reframes the focus of supervision, management, and leadership to one that collaborates and builds on strengths with supervisees as competent stakeholders in their work with their clients.

Strengths-Based Recruitment and Development explains how and why strengths-based recruitment (SBR) is having a transformational impact on performance in top companies like Saga, Gap, Starbucks and SABMiller. By shifting the focus from what people can do (competency-based recruitment) to what they naturally enjoy doing, or SBR, these companies have reported results which include a 50% drop in staff turnover, 20% increase in productivity and a 12% increase in customer satisfaction within a matter of months. It is no wonder that organizations in many sectors are adopting this new and powerful approach to improve performance, customer satisfaction and competitive edge. Strengths-Based Recruitment and Development includes case studies and interviews with executive board level leaders. These provide rare insight into how they implemented strengths approaches in their organizations to improve the bottom line and performance. The book shows how strengths-based talent management goes beyond simply recruiting the right people to creating a strategy and culture that has a transformational effect on organisational culture and results. Strengths-Based Recruitment and Development will be the go-to book on strengths-based talent management for HR professionals and managers. Online supporting resources include bonus frequently asked questions about strengths-based talent management.

This book presents a practical yet comprehensive framework for thinking about and doing clinical supervision. It provides a strengths based, process phase model that begins with engagement and "carries through" to assessment, goal setting, intervention and evaluation. There is also an intervention section that focuses on the clinical supervisor's administrative role as manager, which includes information on managing risk, and managing the agency/staff "fit". Issues related to culturally competent practice, ethics and legal issues are weaved through the book from beginning to end. To help readers learn the complex dynamics of clinical supervision, Dr. Cohen provides a multitude of case illustrations gathered form 30 years of practice experience. These examples are intended to make didactic features of the framework "come alive" as they illuminate the thinking processes of the participants and in most cases, their feelings and behavior as well. Part One, The "Engagement Phase: Constructing the Foundation," defines clinical supervision, roles and the supervisory contract; explores features of relationship building (core relationship skills, cultural competence, and ethical use of self); and covers individual and group formats for supervision. Part Two, "The Work Phase: Building in Engagement," covers assessment, goal setting, intervention and evaluation as well as a section on the managerial aspects of clinical supervision.

Goal Focused Positive Psychotherapy (GFPP) is the first comprehensive approach to strength-oriented therapy that fully incorporates positive psychology principles. This book provides instruction for therapists and students wishing to learn a strength-oriented mindset and the necessary skills. GFPP consists of four hallmarks: (1) formation of approach goals; (2) identification and use of client strengths; (3) promotion of positive emotions and experiences; and (4) building hope. Unique to psychotherapy, the theory of change uses Frederickson's Broaden-and-Build Theory of positive emotions. A three-year study is presented that provides evidence of GFPP's outcome effectiveness and GFPP's superiority in supporting therapists building therapeutic alliances with clients. The book describes the therapeutic techniques and positive psychology interventions including positive empathy, capitalization, best possible self, success-finding, encouragement, self-affirmation, mindfulness, miracle and scaling questions, and self-compassion. The primary emphasis of GFPP is to promote happiness, health, and well-being in clients, in contrast to the emphasis of traditional therapy approaches on problem symptom alleviation. The assumption is that clients who benefit by increasing their well-being will be equipped to address problems in their life that inevitably arise. Training and supervision methods are suggested and a supervision model is provided. The information is integrated and illustrated with a chapter of case examples from four GFPP therapists. Readers learn that client problems are not ignored but balanced with an emphasis on positive issues that use the client's strengths and enhance the client's hope. GFPP will appeal to counseling, clinical, and school psychologists, as well as counselors, marriage and family therapists, social workers, life coaches, and students in all these fields.
