New Publication by CCPD Staff

Hazel Reid and Jane Westergaard are delighted with the recent publication of their new book 'Effective Supervision for Counsellors: An introduction' (Learning Matters / Sage).

The book will be a valuable resource to both supervisors-in-training and those who work in the broad remit of the 'helping professions' and are supervising or being supervised.

Norman Claringbull, the Counselling Series Editor for Learning Matters / Sage says:

"This is an excellent hands-on book that will be of enormous help to supervisors and supervisees alike.  At its heart, the book shows supervisors and supervisees how to get the best out of their working relationships.  This book is full of useful exercises, practical hints, case studies and lots of guidance  about future learning".
