Interactional Supervision - Part 1

This webinar will begin by describing the theoretical building blocks of the interactional supervision model most widely understood within the profession. As participation in supervision is a requirement of the AASW Code of Ethics, both supervisors and supervisees hope that the experience will be as positive and constructive as possible. The supervisor has to integrate the role of educator with that of provider of support and often quality oversight of the supervisee’s clients. These three functions do not always sit comfortably together. Understanding the parallels between supervision and other helping relationships will help the supervisor develop an integrated and interactional style.
