Supervision is an essential process in community welfare/health groups for group leaders to obtain support, guidance, mentoring, reflection and the development of new opportunities or directions in leadership and co-leadership practice. It is also an essential element of professional practice in ensuring quality control in the standard of group work provided to clients.
As a result of supervision, group leaders achieve greater levels of confidence, success and effectiveness in their day to day work. Supervisors will build on the group leader’s strengths and competencies and enable the development of new approaches to issues that arise in the group.
The Institute of Group Leaders also provides members with access to experienced group work supervision. Supervision is provided through:
face-to-face sessions (length 60 minutes)
over the telephone or internet sessions (VIOP) (length 60 minutes)
