Illuminates the tasks, roles and responsibilities of group supervisors and supervisees. Divided into two parts, this book focuses on the skills of managing each type of group, and offers guidelines for making clear agreements and alliances, developing flexible leadership and making sense of group and individual developmental needs.
This much-awaited book makes a welcome entry into the rather sparse British literature on group supervision' - "Counselling at Work

"This is a welcome addition to the literature on counselling supervision. I found it especially stimulating having used various models of group supervision as a senior probation officer, and now using it in a listening post. In both examples the method did not replace individual supervision, but greatly enhanced it....I thank Brigid Proctor for her guidelines for good practice and stimulating ideas for using the potential of groupwork within the supervision process, and recognize it as a really valuable "Sage-like" contribution' -" ACCORD

"Anyone who has read previous works by Brigid Proctor will be delighted to see another of her books. And indeed, this book will not disappoint.... The book is likely to be valued by anyone with an understanding of the supervisory process but who is seeking ways of relating their skills and knowledge to working in a group context.... As a good supervisor would do, this book encourages the reader to develop their own style and sense of spontaneity in dealing with the differing needs of groups of supervisees' - "Counselling and Psychotherapy Journal

"This book is a most welcome addition to the rapidly growing number of books now available that address aspects of counselling supervision in the British context. To my knowledge, it is the first that deals exclusively with group supervision and it is likely to become a classic text. It provides a comprehensive and, in many ways, inspiring handbook that should prove of enormous help to any individual or organization contemplating setting up group supervisionfor counsellors and other clinical practitioner' - "British Journal of Guidance & Counselling
