The Supervision Frame: a guide for supervision contract setting

The Supervision Frame   – how using this   house   in contract setting can help frame the supervisory process… I’m often asked when working with Supervisors (Supervision of Supervision) …. ‘ How did I find myself in this pickle… my supervisee doesn’t come prepared…. Wasn’t I clear enough about expectations, roles and responsibilities?   Whether you offer individual or group supervision or are part of a peer supervisory relationship, it is important to ensure all involved have a clear understanding of roles responsibilities and the tasks of supervision. The ‘ Supervision Frame’  provides a visual representation to guide discussion in the early stages of negotiating a supervision contract ensuring clarity of  expectations  and the  process  of supervision.  Supervision needs to be collaborative and pitched to the developmental level of the supervisee. Good clinical supervision provides a space for regular reflection on practice enhancing the delivery of clinical care and patient safety.
