• Using supervision: Support or surveillance?

      Peach, Jeremy; Horner, Nigel; University of Chester ; Nottingham Trent University (SAGE, 2007-03-29)
      This chapter will analyse supervision of staff in relation to developmental and managerial functions; argue that pressures on social services organisations have ensured that the need for agency accountability far outweighs its developmental function; suggest that the need for professional supervision is greatly enhanced given the development of inter-professional working arrangements; and propose that approaches to supervision can be applied to social work that have first been developed in the health service.
