As evidenced by the recent proliferation of books about positive psychology, there is a growing realization about the importance of focusing on an individual's strengths. Yet there has been little written about positive psychology that applies this approach to training and supervision. To fill this void, Strengths-Based Clinical Supervision combines the principles of positive psychology with research on effective supervision and training from various disciplines along with the characteristics of effective clinical supervisors.
