About the Author

Mooli Lahad is Founder and Director of the Institute of Dramatherapy, and Director of the Community Stress Prevention Centre, Tel Hai College, Israel. He is a consultant to UNICEF, working in Sarajevo and other parts of the former Yugoslavia during the recent war; while as a supervisor he has worked with teams in many parts of the world, including Israel and Northern Ireland. For the past eighteen years he has supervised mental health care-givers such as psychologists, social workers, doctors, nurses, creative arts therapists and community health workers.


Within each chapter Lahad focuses on a particular creative technique and at the end of the twelve chapters, the reader has a wealth of information about the use of expressive art therapies in supervision which includes storytelling, role-playing, guided fantasy, imagery dialogues, letter writing, drawing and the use of colours and shapes... I feel that this book would be an excellent addition to the supervisor's and supervisee's repertoire. -- Play for Life, Karen O'Neill, PTUK Play Therapists and Supervisor, APAC Course Director

A rich account of the very practical creative methods for the practice of supervision.Lahad opens his chest of treasures collected over more than 20 years of practical and shares them with us generously.

In this book, he shows us multiple ways of applying this work to supervision.This book is a must-have for everyone working or wishing to work in supervision not only cognitively but also in efficient, intuitive and creative way.

-- The International Journal of the Arts in Psychotherapy
This book gives an interesting perspective on the use of arts therapies techniques and tools, for example drama therapy or art therapy in supervision. The author gives numerous examples of the techniques he uses as a facilitator in supervising such varied professionals as child protection officers, art therapists and crisis workers.The broad range of tools employed allows professional care givers to examine their practice afresh. -- Therapy Weekly
This is a delightful book that brings creative ideas from Mooli Lahad's work across a range of disciplines that could be usefully shared by counsellors, counselling supervisors and trainers of supervisors... she provides suggestions for exercises that are able to access intuition and logic, and can be applied to individual, group and self-supervision. Ideas are illuminated by useful examples of ways of using metaphor, visualisation, writing, drawing and dramatic techniques in his work with practitioners who find themselves facing confusion, stuckness or resistance with their clients or supervisees. The reader is shown how, by valuing and connecting with individuals through their strengths, we can encourage them to develop modes of experiencing they may use infrequently. -- Counselling and Psychotherapy Journal
The richness of his supervisory style and techniques jumps off the page at you, thus the book is lively, colourful and thought provoking. Anyone wanting to stimulate and challenge their ideas about supervision will get something from this book. -- The Journal of Critical Psychology, Counselling & Psychotherapy

This book is rooted in the creative supervision programme at the London Centre for Psychodrama... The authors write concisely yet at depth about complex levels of supervisory processes.... I enjoyed the interweaving of supervision theory and methodology with descriptions of how using creative approaches can unlock human experience and catalyse reflective processes. I was excited by the art-based, six-shape supervision structure... was moved by the chapter describing supervision of work with children and greatly enjoyed the thoughtful way in which the chapter on 'potential space' knitted together multiple strands.
This book is a well-articulated, grounded resource for supervisors and trainee supervisors working in creative therapeutic fields and a useful addition to their essential reading list.
