This book is the follow-up to the acclaimed Freedom to Practise (2004) also edited by Keith Tudor and Mike Worrall. As the subtitle suggests, it develops the groundbreaking work in person-centred approaches to supervision begun by the first volume. It will be a welcome addition to the resources available to supervisors of all theoretical orientations.

Chapter 16  Training Supervisors Keith Tudor and Mike Worrall

This second volume of writings on the broad theme of Person-Centred approaches to supervision both develops Keith Tudor and Mike Worrall's philosophical stance on supervision practice and introduces new perspectives from across the spectrum of Person-Centred thinking ... this companion to the first volume has provided a rich source of materials (along with its references to a vast array of related writing) stimulating debate and creative thinking about what supervision is, and can be. Although some of the arguments presented would require a deeper knowledge of Person-Centred theory to fully appreciate, much of the material and certainly the overriding philosophical stance I think would be of interest to anyone working in a supervisory or mentoring role with practitioners in the 'helping' professions. Marian Kavanagh, Senior Lecturer in Counselling, University of Cumbria in BJGC 37(2) 2009.
