The launch of this edition coincides with the launch of the first UKCP Professional Register for Supervisors. The authors have done much to promote the development of supervision, and all future professional trainings in supervision will rely on their wisdom and experience. Key words for this edition are sustainability, resourcing and deeper levels of self reflection - mirroring the movement of our profession which increasingly turns outwards, asking how we can effect societal as well as individual change." Tree Staunton, Director of Studies, Bath Centre for Psychotherapy and Counselling, and Chair of the Humanistic and Integrative College of UKCP "This book remains a seminal text in supervision. In the fourth edition the authors bring a contemporary perspective to bear on supervision with an emphasis on the wider contextual and cultural contexts of our work as supervisors. I appreciate above all the 'fearless compassion' with which the authors have addressed the challenges that face us as supervisors in a global culture, and at the same time their ongoing stress on integrating the 'emotional and the rational, the personal and the organizational' in a very accessible model of supervision."

In both examples the method did not replace individual supervision, but greatly enhanced it....I thank Brigid Proctor for her guidleines for good practice and stimulating ideas for using the potential of groupwork within the supervision process, and recognise it as a really valuable "Sage-like" contribution' - ACCORD This p

With the number of large congregations rising in the U.S., these congregations are increasingly dependent upon a greater number of staff to meet the needs of their diverse collection of members. As leaders of multi-staff teams, senior clergy must play the dual role of both Moses and Aaron--both visionary and detail-oriented leader--in order for their large congregations to thrive. They need to be skilled with the tools of human resource management, while at the same time setting a vision and inspiring both staff and congregation. Unfortunately, until now there have been few resources for senior clergy who lead multi-staff teams. Working without adequate models and tools, senior clergy of large congregations often find themselves with passionate, dedicated staff members who are moving in different directions, competing over limited resources and attention. They end up with questions of how to evaluate the performance of staff and direct their efforts. They find themselves using time, attention, and resources to care for staff rather than using staff as a resource to care for the mission of the congregation. Longtime Alban senior consultant Gil Rendle and Alban senior consultant Susan Beaumont have developed When Moses Meets Aaron to help clergy responsible for several-member staff teams navigate these unknown waters. They have taken the best of human resource practices and immersed them in a congregational context, providing a comprehensive manual for supervising, motivating, and coordinating staff teams. Rendle and Beaumont give both detailed and big picture guidance on hiring, job descriptions, supervision, performance evaluation, staff-team design, difficult staff behavior, and more. Their combined experience in consulting and training with staff and leaders of large congregations proves invaluable in this manual for today's leadership demands.

Britain has a fine tradition of writing about supervision practice. This book connects to this by organizing reflection around the practice taken from the author's sixteen years experience as a practitioner. Taking three broad sets of tasks of supervision as an organizing frame, the book weaves examples of professional experience with current research and other reflective writing. From a broadly humanistic perspective, she examines the developmental journey of a supervisor interested in the overlap of the personal and the professional. Penny's background in adult and higher education leads her to emphasize the learning that comes through development of practice wisdom in collegial supervisory conversations. Research has emphasized the importance of the relationship for effective supervision. This book combines an interest in creating and sustaining the relationship, with extending the development of the supervisee. It is unique in exploration of the pragmatics of practice, while describing the normative roles and tasks inherent in the part of supervisory work that focuses on the protection of the client.
