It is now almost ten years since Fundamental Themes in Clinical Supervision (Cutcliffe et al. 2001), was written and during these years, clinical supervision (CS) has remained on the radar for those involved in health care practice, education, development and/or education. While it might be argued that attention to CS within academic journal articles may have passed beyond its zenith (arguably this occurred during the 1990s), examination of the extant literature reveals that CS is very much still a matter of high interest. The possible decline in the number of papers notwithstanding, a closer inspection of the extant literature shows a number of interesting things. First, the papers that continue to be published appear to add something new, meaningful and/or significant to the literature (and it would be inaccurate to assert this of the papers produced during the 1990s when there was a great deal of repetition). Second, while it might be said that some of the earlier published work could have ‘delved a little deeper’ into the substantive issues, the more recent published work appears to do just that. Third, almost no new CS books have emerged during recent years.
