State of the Art in Clinical Supervision

Author: John R. Culbreth
Publisher: Routledge
ISBN: 9781135852757
Release Date: 2009-10-19
Genre: Psychology

There have been many recent developments in the research, theory, and practice of supervision in counseling, but few reliable resources are available for practitioners seeking to expand their knowledge in these areas. Culbreth and Brown have assembled a group of leading researchers, scholars, and professionals in the field to present a collection of chapters on the state of the art in clinical supervision. These chapters provide the reader with fresh approaches to core topics, such as multicultural competence, religion and spirituality, and the training of supervisors, as well as discussions of new areas of study. Alternative methods to conducting supervision are explored with expressive art techniques and the uses of narrative therapy and concepts of emotional intelligence. Triadic supervision and the use of the newest developments in technology are also considered. Current and future supervisors will no doubt find the innovative and informative strategies described in this book invaluable in their work with supervisees.

Chance Meetings

Author: William Saroyan
Publisher: Bloomsbury Publishing
ISBN: 9781448214815
Release Date: 2015-01-13
Genre: Biography & Autobiography

In his touching and amusing memoir Chance Meetings, William Saroyan gives us a glimpse of the characters that have left an indelible impression on his mind for years to come. From the Armenian neighbourhood of his childhood to the Parisian streets of his formative years, we meet the people that have inspired, perplexed, angered and enamoured him. We meet finely drawn personalities like the Armenian Cabinet maker, that planed wood whilst his mind composed beautiful poems, who would call him into his shop and embarrass Saroyan with his recitations. We visit the tiny desk of the only famous writer in San Francisco, who kindly replied to Saroyan's letter and invited him into his office. And the playful image of his mother, who would caricature everyone from the postman to the president with hilarious precision. First published in 1978, Chance Meetings builds a picture of the author through the people that surrounded him throughout his life, who shaped and formed a great writer, and were immortalised by his words.
