INTERACTIONAL SUPERVISORY COMPETENCIES
Training in interactional supervisory competencies is essential to effective reflective practice and helps address the current crisis in the social work profession. Interactional supervision, the approach used, is well established in reflective social work. It focuses the task of the supervisor and supervisee on the interpersonal exchanges encountered in the supervisory relationship.

Three types of competencies are identified

  • managing supervisory relationships
  • managing job performance
  • promoting professional development
Competency training is a feasible and potentially effective approach and is associated with supervisor satisfaction and stress management. The training employed is compatible with skills-based and intervention-specific supervisor training common among evidence-based treatments and is appropriate for use with reflective social workers, counseling and reflective psychologists, and psychiatric nurses.
