Knowledge and Practice Hubs

Supervision knowledge and practice hub

Supervisor with supervisee

Learning points

  • How to shift supervision from a ‘verbal deluge’ of update from the social worker to focus on addressing their practice dilemmas.
  • Advice on meeting requirements to record and provide oversight while creating space for a reflective rather than task-focused approach.
  • Ways to make discussion of emotion – both the practitioner’s and children and families’ – central to the process.

The resources in this hub support point 9 of the knowledge and skills statement for child and family practitioners: child and family assessment and the knowledge and skills statement for practice supervisors.
