Page last updated: 2004

Slide 1

The supervision process provides you with the opportunity to:
  • reflect and discuss challenging and confronting aspects of your work

  • reflect on things that you have done well and work out ways of dealing with situations more effectively

  • discuss situations with clients where you feel you are 'stuck' (whilst maintaining confidentiality, of course!)

  • explore any issues arising out of their work role that need addressing

Slide 2

  • Supervision can be provided by managers, by external providers or by peers

  • Supervision provides a learning opportunity by allowing you to reflect on your work and develop your professional skills
