Our particular thanks to the authors who have contributed to the book and to Susan Worsey at Sage who is, as ever, a delight to work with. Elizabeth would like to express her gratitude to the trainers in Britain who have welcomed her to their shores and taught her so much about supervision as a lifelong enterprise.
