Supervision is an essential framework for a professional relationship to develop. Many professionals, including psychologists, counsellors, mental health practitioners practice developed systems of supervision, in the best interest; both for staff and clients.
Supervision offers support and stability for both organization and supervisees; improves better working relations, mutual trust, and security. These qualities help develop long-term relationships for personal and professional development. This may be difficult to achieve within staff if appropriate clinical support is not offered and can pose a threat to the functional dynamics of client work.
It helps build up rapport, and it provides an articulate process that is empowering and, supportive. Supervision will enable staff (clinical/non clinical) to develop greater knowledge and a deeper understanding of accountability. Supervision is a tool to support staff to reflect on their client /casework practice and work on their own strengths and develop their weaknesses.
Ways supervision can help:
During supervision ground rules are agreed so that the supervisees and supervisor approaches clinical/non clinical clients openly, confidently and are aware of what is involved, learning boundaries.
Every staff member in the supervision group will have time to bring their case-work to supervision. The group will have a realistic number of practitioners/staff within a group, giving a minimum of 20minutes per supervisee to present their case.
Supervision will improve good working relationships with effective communication to interact.
Improve client trust and build good working relations and interaction within staff and client.
Supervision supports client practice, enabling practitioners/case workers to maintain and promote standards of care.
Clinical/non clinical supervision focuses on the professional relationship to help the practitioner reflect on his/her ethical standards.
Supervision provides a flexible approach according to organization requirements to meet client needs and circumstances.
Supervision will evaluate client needs to assess how supervisees influence care, practice standards and the service.
Supervisory relationship will focus within a multicultural environment, reflecting on difference change.
