Synopsis

Supervision in Educational, Social and Medical Services Professions investigates both theoretical and practical aspects of stress, burnout and brain-drain; the need for supervision; the benefits of professional supervision; and the most common types of supervision; and provides a definition of the supervisor and their role in educational, social and medical professions. The book also presents quantitative research on a sample of 400 professionals (educators, medical assistants, psychologists, and social workers), aimed at identifying the need for supervision, the understanding and acceptance level of supervision, the advantages of supervision, as well as the burnout and brain-drain levels of professionals supplying direct services to their clients. The book is the result of a postdoctoral grant and will appeal to a wide range of professionals such as social workers, psychologists, medical assistants and doctors, teachers, researchers, as well as to all those interested in the field of social work and willing to develop professionally and personally.
