This module will explore the philosophical concepts of supervision, what it is in relation to the work you do. We will look at the goals and outcomes of the methods used and explore how it applies to each member of the group.
Here we will look at the ‘process model’ of supervision put forward by Hawkins and Shoet in their book on supervision called “Supervision in the helping profession” 1989. This is an excellent model for mapping out where you are in the supervisory process. You can also use this model as a Parallel process model.
In this module we will look at the different tasks of supervision and specifically the gate keeping process within supervision. We will also examine the notion of the Parallel process in supervision.
Here we will look at the developmental aspect of supervision.
We will look at the developmental models of Richard Erskine, Delworth, and Stoltenburg, as a guide to how we may approach the supervision process.
In this module we will bring together the various strands of what we have been looking at in the previous modules, and hopefully find an integrative view of supervision which will suit your own particular style.
