This resource book for mentors is a timely contribution to the academic fraternity and to professionals in social development sectors, especially in a context where there is an acute dearth of suitable literature and what is available is fragmented and scattered. The book views mentoring as a creative process in which empathetic human interactions can potentially transform human beings. It addresses the challenges of those guiding field activities: ranging from lack of clarity in articulating 'what and why' to actually handing the nitly-gritty and 'when and how' of facilitating the integration of theory inputs with field placements. It will support mentors in designing field experience; helping a team navigate its work and relationships, conducting on-job trainings and developing clarity about their role as facilitators with real life illustrations drawn from interactions with, and feedback from several professionals in diverse fields. It reflects committed scholarship with deep engagement, where the author purposefully anticipates and addresses mentors' problems and challenges. The volume is put together with great care to help a mentor pay personal attention to the needs of each learner, and adopt innovative and creative approaches to problem solving that results in win-win solutions. The ready pointers, checklists, tolls, guidelines, assessment tips for action and reflection presented in this book are extremely valuable for the mentor. Printed Pages: 277.
