Supervision in an integrated setting

What is the video about?

This film shows how the quality of social work in an integrated mental health setting can be enhanced by complementing  line management supervision with clinical and professional supervision.

Messages for practice

1. Reflective supervision provides the opportunity for a social worker to balance the needs of the client, the needs of the organisation, the requirements of the profession and their own professional needs.

2.  The quality of practice and performance in social work (mental health) can be enhanced by having both management and clinical or professional supervision.
3.  Clear lines of accountability and communication are necessary if different aspects of supervision are delivered by different people. This should ensure that significant information about a particular case is managed appropriately.
