Webinar Description

Supervisors should be knowledgeable of and skilled at the interrelated functions and responsibilities of professional supervision and the scope of practice for which they are providing oversight. Supervisors and supervisees should be proactive in familiarizing themselves with the specific requirements of their professional discipline and jurisdiction for qualifications for supervision and regularly reviewing for updates.

There is no singular, unanimous model for supervision within or amongst individual human services disciplines. To support students and novice clinicians build clinical competence, develop their professional identity, and shape future practice supervisors must establish expectations and standards to evaluate the impact and outcome of supervision.

In this training we discuss the key responsibilities of the social work supervisor and provide practical resources to assess the developmental progress of supervisees.
