Taking into account the changes in public policy and reductions in financial resources that have occurred over the last ten years, the fourth edition of Supervision in Social Work defines the place of supervision in the social agency, its functions, its process, and its problems. Explored in detail are topics of risk management, of countering worker burnout through supportive supervision, and the problems and stresses associated with becoming and being a supervisor.
This book should become the basic text on supervision for schools of social work, practitioners, supervisors, and agencies concerned with in-service training and accountability. . . . Kadushin's analysis of the administrative, educational, and supportive components of supervision is excellent.
