SW762, Section 001

This minicourse, offered over two days, has two major foci. One involves a focus on competency (= knowledge + skill in implementation) in the area of Managerial Supervision. It discusses the 5 main types of supervision: Professional Supervision, Managerial Supervision, Supportive Supervision, Developmental/Career Supervision, and Reflective Supervision. The second focus is on you as a supervisor and supervisee. In about year 3 +/- after graduation, and often sooner, you will be asked to “supervise” others. There is a conflated understanding about what that means, and agencies will say they will help you, but mostly they do not. Nor do they have talent management systems which prepare you for that eventuality. Hence, it depends on you. Meanwhile you will be receiving supervision. So the goal here is to you the process of helping your supervisor be the best s/he can be as immediately helpful and as a training modality for year 3.
