Solution-oriented inquiry for ongoing supervision: Expanding the horizon of change
Lowe, Roger D. & Guy, Glen E. (2002) Solution-oriented inquiry for ongoing supervision: Expanding the horizon of change. In McMahon, Mary & Patton, Wendy (Eds.) Supervision in the helping professions : a practical approach. Pearson Education Australia, Frenchs Forrest, NSW, pp. 143-155.
In this chapter, we outline an approach to supervision which draws its concepts and methods from the broad umbrella of solution oriented therapies. It features a collaborative process of inquiry that is well suited to both individual and group supervision (Lowe and Guy, 1996, 1999). The specific contribution of this chapter, however, is to expand the horizon of solution oriented inquiry by including the potential for utilising developmental themes and narratives emerging from ongoing supervision relationships. By analogy, this is similar to adapting the conventional brief applications of solution oriented therapy to the context of longer term therapeutic work and relationships. The chapter outlines the characteristic assumptions and priorities of solution oriented approaches, discusses our point of departure from previous literature, develops an integrative map for practice and provides practical guidelines and examples of useful practice questions.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
