The new book from CSA: Full Spectrum Supervision

book-coverThis book takes the reader into the heart of the practice of supervision – its methods, models and its magic. Using case study focus and the Full Spectrum Model of Supervision as a guide, readers will discover how the practical and profound enquiry of supervision frees up practitioners to work more intelligently, skilfully – and with humanity. Supervision offers a unique space – a space in which coaches, mentors and leaders can reflect on their work and become more effective in taking care of their organizations, their teams, their clients and themselves. The book will illustrate how supervision draws on adult learning theory, systems theory, the art of reflection, mindfulness, relational psychology, neuro-science and generative dialogue. These provide a rich resource for the reflective practice known as supervision and they bring depth and richness to classic supervision maps and models.
