RESOURCES

Supervision

Clinical and general supervision provided for Social Workers online.  Geraldene works from a critical reflective stance that allows individual Social Work practice to be viewed through the multiple lenses provided by- differing theoretical perspectives, research and Social Work values and ethics.  The mirrors of practice so gained enable those receiving supervision to engage their practice in ways that promote advanced Social Work.

Benefits for Social Workers in private practice include a safe place to discuss practice issues and formulate practice strategies as well as a place to reflect on practice and career goals.

Benefits for Social Workers working in agencies include the separation of line management from practice reflection and development and the provision of a safe space to reflect and plan for career goals.
