Abstract

Supervision has been described as the “pivot” upon which the integrity and excellence of social work practice can be maintained. However, there is little research that examines its impact on how social workers work directly with children and their families. Where effectiveness studies exist, they tend to explore the impact of supervision on organisational and staff-related outcomes such as retention rates or worker well-being. The current study focuses on one specific sub-category of the wider supervision and practice literature: systemic group supervision or “systemic supervision” and is based on a wider evaluation of systemic social work practice in the UK. The paper pairs observations of systemic supervision (n = 14) and observations of direct practice (n = 18) in peoples' homes. It presents correlational data on the relationship between supervision quality and direct practice quality to assess whether there is an association between the two practice forums.
