SUPERVISION FOR SOCIAL WORK PRACTITIONERS
In that manner, social workers are able to help individuals, families, groups and communities to enhance their individual and collective well-being. Their role in society is of importance and therefore it is necessary for them to be equipped with the necessary knowledge and learn practices which will assist them to help other people.
Social Workers help people to cope with challenges in every stage of their lives!
"Social work is a practice-based profession and an academic discipline that promotes social change and development, social cohesion, and the empowerment and liberation of people. Principles of social justice, human rights, collective responsibility and respect for diversities are central to social work. Underpinned by theories of social work, social sciences, humanities and indigenous knowledge, social work engages people and structures to address life challenges and enhance wellbeing."

(INTERNATIONAL FEDERATION OF SOCIAL WORKERS)
In our current projects it is included the provision of supervision for social work practitioners. This is an ongoing project which aims to support social work practitioners to develop their knowledge, in order to effectively deliver promising practices to people who need it.
The Supervision we offer, is a shared process that identifies, and enhances facilitation of, the inner resources of the supervised, whilst providing teaching, sharing of experiences, care and support, and the ongoing development of their professional role and identity. The supervision services purpose is, to encourage effective, ethical counselling for clients while attending to the personal and professional well-being of the supervised. Supervision is a process of accountability, reflection, and a wider perspective and extra resource for the supervisee’s work.
Supervision is offered either in group or individual sessions for practitioners who are interested in any social services field and they seek improvement.
Supervision topics include areas such as:
Professional Development and setting of Goals
Boundaries and Use of Self
Risk Assessment and Review of the Case in discussion
