auspices. The advertising material below offers information on the
book’s structure and content.
The New Handbook of Administrative Supervision in Counseling
Successful administrative supervisors establish work environments that
provide excellent, culturally responsive services to clients and also
contribute to the accomplishment of their agencies’ mission and
operations. They manage effective and efficient service delivery
systems and lead staff members in maintaining the highest levels of
competence and commitment. To meet these goals, administrative
supervisors must develop and continue to update their knowledge base
and skills—and this book provides the tools to do so.
Intended for new, aspiring, or practicing administrative supervisors
in counseling, The New Handbook of Administrative Supervision in
Counseling describes 18 responsibilities of supervisors of
professional counselors in public and private mental health agencies,
private practice, and schools. Extensively updated from the highly
successful first edition, this edition synthesizes current practice,
theory, and research from counseling and other relevant disciplines to
define and explore this underdeveloped dimension of professional
counseling. It delineates the skills administrative supervisors need,
the issues they face, and provides examples of useful strategies for
working with supervisees.
The Handbook is based on Dr. Henderson’s more than 35 years of
experience as a clinical and administrative supervisor of counselors
and 20 years as a trainer and supervisor of new and practicing
administrative supervisors. Sponsored by the Association for Counselor
Education and Supervision (ACES).
