Clinical Supervision in the Real World A Practical Guide to Ethics, Legal Issues, and Personal Development

Clinical Supervision in the Real World A Practical Guide to Ethics, Legal Issues, and Personal Development

Author: Francis Martin, Janet Turner Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 12/12/2019

This practical guide provides support for mental health practitioners as they develop their approach to clinical supervision, drawing on the authors' extensive experience of counseling and psychotherapy to bring readers into the real world of clinical supervision. Chapters introduce the essential responsibilities and tasks of a clinical supervisor and place emphasis on the development of a Competence-Oriented Model of Clinical Supervision, upon which a philosophical foundation for supervision can be built. Integrating up-to-date research with case vignettes and practical resources, the text discusses philosophies of clinical supervision and explores themes that often define a supervisor's contextual world, from professional ethics and legal issues to the personal development of both the supervisor and the supervisee. Affirming and encouraging professional development as well as identifying a range of common challenges, Clinical Supervision in the Real World is a key resource for aspiring clinical supervisors looking to build their own philosophy of supervision.

Encountering the Living God in Scripture Theological and Philosophical Principles for Interpretation

Author: Francis Martin, William M. IV Wright, Robert Sokolowski Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 22/01/2019

This work gives a philosophical and theological account of the belief that Scripture enables people to encounter the life-giving reality of God.

Microbial Environmental Genomics (MEG)

Microbial Environmental Genomics (MEG)

Author: Francis Martin Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 31/03/2018

This volume seeks to understand how organisms and gene functions are influenced by environmental cues while accounting for variation that takes place within and among environmental populations and communities. Microbial Environmental Genomics (MEG) guides readers through methods to analyse the diversity of different organism types (archaea, bacteria, fungi, protists and microfauna), interactions between fungi and trees, and methods to identify and characterize functions and functional diversity of both pro- and eukaryotes. Written for the Methods in Molecular Biology series, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls. Authoritative and practical, Microbial Environmental Genomics (MEG) will serve as a primary research reference for researchers and research managers in environmental microbiology working in the expanding field of molecular ecology and environmental genomics.

Molecular Mycorrhizal Symbiosis

Molecular Mycorrhizal Symbiosis

Author: Francis Martin Format: Hardback Release Date: 09/12/2016

Recent years have seen extensive research in the molecular underpinnings of symbiotic plant-fungal interactions. Molecular Mycorrhizal Symbiosis is a timely collection of work that will bridge the gap between molecular biology, fungal genomics, and ecology. A more profound understanding of mycorrhizal symbiosis will have broad-ranging impacts on the fields of plant biology, mycology, crop science, and ecology. Molecular Mycorrhizal Symbiosis will open with introductory chapters on the biology, structure and phylogeny of the major types of mycorrhizal symbioses. Chapters then review different molecular mechanisms driving the development and functioning of mycorrhizal systems and molecular analysis of mycorrhizal populations and communities. The book closes with chapters that provide an overall synthesis of field and provide perspectives for future research. Authoritative and timely, Molecular Mycorrhizal Symbiosis, will be an essential reference from those working in plant and fungal biology.
