Clinical Supervision: Based on Solution Based Casework Supervisor’s Academy
Welcome and Ice Breaker Pair up in groups of two Interview partner and discover what is their vision for their unit; and explore the strengths, resources and talents they bring to their team. Introduce partner and share what you discovered about them….
Clinical Supervision What is Clinical Supervision?
Clinical Supervision The Supervisor’s Role in Case Management “As the supervision goes, so goes the casework” Developing partnerships Focusing on everyday life events Promoting skills Asking questions SAFETY IS ALWAYS OUR FIRST PRIORITY
Clinical Supervision What isn’t Clinical Supervision?
Clinical Supervision What it is not “Hallway” supervision Telling the worker what to do Timelines only Performance measures only
It’s about Time…. How will we find the time to guide our workers into using best practice?
It’s About Time…. Some of our Challenges Quick decisions often lead to poor outcomes… “slowing down to speed up”. Clinical Supervision means less crisis management. What is good for families is good for workers.
Solution Based Casework: What is it and how does it fit in? SBC is the common conceptual map between supervisor and caseworker How do we help our workers focus on best practice?
Case Consultation Process Our goal is to work in partnership with people to help identify their strengths, focus on everyday life events, and help them build the skills necessary to manage situations that are difficult for them.
Case Consultation Process 1. Help the workers get to know the family by introducing the family’s members with a genogram. Remind the team of the development challenges family’s like theirs face.
Case Presentation Guide 2. List and discuss the family’s strengths and skills. What does the family do well? What are they proud of? What gives them a sense of self worth and satisfaction?
Case Presentation Guide 3. Discuss what is difficult for the family. What situations in everyday life are high risk for difficulty for them? What is their current pattern for trying to accomplish these tasks?
Case Presentation Guide 4.Discuss what individual problems family members might have that serve as barriers to resolving the problems in the family. What do you know about those individual patterns of behavior?
Case Presentation Guide 5.If you have co-developed plans with the family (or individual family members), what are they? (Please bring enough copies for the team). How are the plans going so far? Is the family keeping track of their successes? If so, bring some copies of their accomplishments
Solution Based Casework: Partnership The optimal supervisory relationship is one in which both the supervisor and worker are transformed by the interaction The optimal supervisory relationship is one in which both the supervisor and worker are transformed by the interaction.
Supervision with Individual Workers What will work for you and your team?
The Building Blocks of Clinical Supervision Maintaining a Partnership Ask about specific situations Notice competency Ask about problem exceptions Elicit potential solution strategies
The Building Blocks of Clinical Supervision Tracking Problem Patterns Individual Family
The Building Blocks of Clinical Supervision Keeping tasks concrete, specific and documented The worker must get out the plan every time the case is discussed with the supervisor.
Small Group Discussion Break up into groups of four. Think about a recent supervision interaction. Given what we have discussed, how might you do things differently. Report back to the large group
You Are The Experts What would Clinical Supervision look like in your discipline using the concepts and skills We have been discussing?
You are the Experts What should a case transfer look like using the Clinical Supervision concepts we have been talking about?
Tips for Quality Clinical Supervision Keep your social worker thinking developmentally…What are the developmental stages of the family? Focus on everyday life tasks...what specific tasks are they struggling with? Tracking the problem. Helping social worker remain solution based. “Teaching rather than telling”
More Tips for Quality Supervision Where is the family doing well? What do they need to do to move the case forward? What family tasks do they need to work on? What individual skills do they need to develop?
What is your Plan? Break up into groups of two and develop a written outline of how you will take what we have discussed to day and implement it into your unit. Remember to be SMARRT about your plan! Report back to the large group
Clinical Supervision The supervisory relationship is our greatest training and practice tool. Let’s use it to mentor social workers and develop great practice.
