"This book makes a major contribution to the literature. Thoughtful, scholarly, and readable, it deals with contemporary relational supervision based upon mutuality between supervisor and supervisee. This teaching-learning-experiential matrix is cogently presented and demonstrated with lively vignettes. There is much here for experienced supervisors seeking an update, novice supervisors learning the craft, and supervisors of case conferences, as well as students who are interested in how supervision works." --Leopold Caligor, PhD, Training Analyst, William Alanson White Institute; Coeditor of Clinical Perspectives on the Supervision of Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy

"Over the past couple of decades, psychoanalysis has been undergoing a thorough reevaluation, recasting, and revision of all its fundamental concepts, in terms of both theory and clinical practice. Many new angles and fresh ideas about supervision have been introduced, but there has until now been no comprehensive, comparative text exploring different models of supervision, their theoretical underpinnings, and their clinical implications. This book is a timely, much-needed project. In its thoughtfulness and thoroughness, it should be of considerable use as a text for all levels of clinical training and as a stimulus for new thinking for clinicians of all persuasions." --Stephen A. Mitchell, PhD, Founding Editor, Psychoanalytic Dialogues: A Journal of Relational Perspectives "This book provides a definitive relational approach to psychoanalytic supervision, and it does more. The authors give us an evenhanded and illuminating account of major psychoanalytic perspectives on supervision, making their points additively rather than by criticism and dismissal of alternate views. They address potential faultlines and dilemmas that all supervisors have felt at one time or another: transferences and countertransferences in the supervisory relationship; the problems and uses of regression; the teach-treat dilemma; conflicts between collegiality and inequality or dependence; and the supervisor's multiple loyalties to institution, supervisee, and patients. This openness and clarity, along with a hands-on feel that includes a rich sampling of extended case vignettes, will make this book of great use to supervisors of all psychoanalytic persuasions." --Nancy J. Chodorow, PhD, psychoanalyst and author of The Power of Feelings
