Using Supervision Effectively for supervisees (adult social care)
Date & Time:
Social Workers in Adults Social Care.
This day aims to give staff in receipt of 1:1 supervision in adult social care an opportunity to understand the key elements of effective supervision, and how they can work with their supervisors in order to maximise its effectiveness. There are a range of models of supporting reflective practice and reflective learning. Critical reflection is seen as a fundamental element of professional practice and the linchpin of sound professional judgment and decision making. A combination of learning methods will be used throughout the day, including lecture, workshop and group work. Interactive and experiential methods, in the form of case studies and reflection dilemmas will be used, to inform participant learning and support application to practice. This course will include looking at the supervision policy and exploring how to use supervision effectively.
By attending this course delegates will have improved knowledge, understanding, confidence and skills in:
• what constitutes effective supervision and its functions.
• How previous experience of being supervised can impact upon their current supervisory relationship.
• the importance of effective agreements within supervision.
• the relationship between supervision and outcomes for service users.
• how the supervision cycle aids the process of reflecting, analysing and action planning within supervision.
• their role in working with their supervisors to develop positive supervision practice
• the supervision policy, including how this outlines the role of supervisees in supervision and the interaction with the supervisor.
