Supporting and developing resilience in social work

4 Supervision

Supervision provides a safe environment for critical reflection, challenge and professional support that operates alongside an organisation’s appraisal process. It includes time for reflection on practice issues that arise in the course of everyday work, and can help social workers and their managers to do their jobs more effectively. It enables social workers to develop their capacity to use their experiences to review practice, receive feedback on their performance, build emotional resilience and think reflectively about the relationships they have formed with children, adults and families.
