With the increased interest in the practice of spiritual direction, both from people feeling called to be spiritual directors, and from those seeking direction, this books addresses the need to train the supervisors of spiritual directors.

This collection of essays is one of the first books in the field that help with the training of supervisors. Written by spiritual directors who have years of experience in supervision between them, this book engages some of the leading voices in the field in an exploration of a wide variety of issues, including: gender and sexuality; ethical dilemmas; working with diverse racial ethnic constituents; working with the differently abled; the parameters of supervision; the supervision of beginning directors, and more.

An excellent textbook for those who feel called to the role of supervisor, as well as an important book for those who are already practicing in the field.
