Supervision

 

Supervision is a professional service rather than a managerial role. It is good practice for all working professionals. Supervision enables a safe place for us to stand back and reflect on oneself and the organization needs and demands. It can enhance your emotional well- being and provide an opportunity for debriefing difficult situations. It will help to develop your coping strategies on how to deal with work, life and society related issues.

Supervision can help to prevent burnout, (compassion fatigue) reduce stress levels and a way of developing coping strategies.

Research suggests that appropriate emotional support can buffer against anxiety, stress and the management of high workloads. Supervision may help to improve staff well-being morale and improve staff retention.

Supervision can offer a space for debriefing any ethical issues and critical incidents. Effective supervision occurs when the external supervisor is not a member of staff.
