Shows how transformative supervision can be when approached in the right way
Robin Shohet has been teaching supervision through the Centre for Supervision and Team Development for 30 years. He lives with his family at the Findhorn Foundation, a spiritual community in the North East of Scotland. Robin is the editor of Passionate Medicine: Making the transition from conventional medicine to homeopathy and Passionate Supervision, both published by JKP.
Although none of the essays are of direct relevance to ministers, the underlying challenge for ministers is how much richer ministry could become if supervision were to become the norm for us. -- Ministry Today UK I recognise the truth of these essays in the depth of the clinical supervision which I have received in recent years. For anyone who is considering entering such a relationship to support his or her ministry, this book offers a variety of voices articulating a vision of supervision which is both human and divine. An MD of a large financial firm recently summed up his own experience of professional supervision: "This work is really all about Love." -- Church Times this is a text for those who want a wider view on supervision, delivered in non-academic readable chunks, albeit with adequate references after each chapter, I can't imagine anyone finding nothing of value. Most is pure transformative gold. -- Counselling, Children and Young People If you want to know about these more spiritual approaches, and how they apply to supervision, this is the book for you. It is very charmingly written, and quite inspiring (...) It would challenge anyone who had a more stereotyped view of supervision -- ACPNL Magazine I suggest that this book would be useful to supervisors in particular, and would recommend individual chapters to the professional within any field, including healthcare, who wishes to see organisational change with and openness to exploring how supervision may facilitate this. -- HCPJ Robin Sholet has a knack for inviting authors with original contributions to make. These 10 authors offer an interesting, collegial take on the fashionable topic of transformational learning (TL), which is enabled through relationships, and reviews basic assumptions... Overall, the book addresses a fashionable topic in supervision, in original, practice-based, engagingly readable and varied ways. It would be of interest to experience practitioners, most probably those also curious about the relationship of personal to professional development, and the impact of the organisational context for work. -- Therapy Today
