Supervision in Social Work

Front Cover
Columbia University Press, 1992 - Social workers - 597 pages
This third edition addresses the place and function of the supervisor in the social agency, updating long-standing controversies such as the conflict between professionalism and bureaucracy, and addressing the question of social work autonomy within organizations. The book discusses how dwindling resources have forced social work practice to become more results-oriented in a limited time frame. A new chapter explores what supervisors should teach and new sections have been added on feminist supervision, development supervision, the parallel process in supervision, and the ecology of social work supervision.
