Social Work Supervision Guidelines

Social Work Supervision Seminar & Supervision Guidelines

Thanks to the support of the SWAAB Social Work Supervision Workgroup, Seminar Organising Committee and our generous sponsors (MSF, WSG and the Lee Foundation), the second Social Work Supervision Seminar on "Innovative Ways to Chart the Bare Essentials" organised by SWAAB was a great success. It was attended by about 350 senior social workers with at least 4 years of social work supervision experience. The presentations by the 3 speakers from New Zealand and Hong Kong and the 14 speakers from Singapore at the plenary sessions and workshops were most insightful. The seminar also witnessed the launching of the first-ever Social Work Supervision Guidelines for the profession. Limited print copies of the Guidelines are available at SASW on request. A soft copy of the Guidelines may be downloaded from here.
