This text presents a state-of-the-art, evidence-based integrated model for supervision in marital and family therapy from the author of the classic Effective Supervision (Brunner-Mazel). It is structured in three parts: an introduction to the new model for family therapist education and supervision; a look at the skills required; and outlines of therapeutic sessions. Supervision is a 'hot topic' across clinical psychology and psychotherapy, with research suggesting that supervision changes therapist behaviour - which affects client outcomes. A companion Web site includes assessment instruments, forms, and outlines to help new therapists with their meetings with clients.
