The goals of supervision are fourfold: (a) to promote supervisee growth and development, (b) to protect the welfare of the client, (c) to monitor supervisee performance and act as a gatekeeper for the profession, and (d) to empower the supervisee to self-supervise and carry out these goals as an independent professional. Supervision is the balance of providing both opportunities and challenges while maintaining a positive and safe professional relationship. This balance requires a firm foundation of appropriate boundaries and information sharing about the process of supervision. Supervision is a complex process that entails a multitude of roles and responsibilities. Roles are the functional relationships between supervisor and those of the supervisee; responsibilities include the clinical, ethical and legal duties of the supervisor. This highly interactive workshop will assist participants in developing the important skills necessary for becoming a competent and effective supervisor. Use of real-life case studies and role-playing provide the participants with opportunities to practice strategies to bring about positive outcomes for the supervisor and the supervisee.
This workshop meets the Maryland's Board of Social Work Examiners requirements for Supervision. This half day course is for current supervisors.
