MEASURING THE NEED FOR EDUCATIONAL SUPERVISION AMONGST CHILD PROTECTION SOCIAL WORKERS: AN EXPLORATION
Keywords:educational supervision, child protection, child protection social worker, Department of Social Development, social work supervision, supervision
AbstractSupervision is a potentially effective tool for empowering social workers to perform their duties to their optimal abilities. There are, however, indications from research and practice that this potential has not always been fully realised in South Africa. This especially applies to educational supervision. The aim of the study on which this article is based was to help address this deficiency by profiling the educational supervision needs of a group of child protection social workers of a provincial department of social development. Its results could be used to address deficiencies not only in that province, but also further afield.
