|Title:||In search of a professional supervisory practice: External social work supervision in China||Author(s):||Mo, Kitty Yuen Han||Issue Date:||2016||Publisher:||Wiley||Journal:||Asian Social Work and Policy Review||Volume:||10||Issue:||3||Start page:||349||End page:||357||Abstract:||
This article examines the importance of supportive and educative functions in the practice of social work supervision and identifies the common features of external social work supervision. Using a qualitative study design, the author explores social workers’ need for professional supervision and support, and the functions and roles commonly played by external supervisors. A mixed model of internal and external supervision is used in some countries; however, such a method is not commonly used or discussed in the literature in Asian regions. The findings of this study suggest that the practice of external supervision should be considered by social work agencies in China. Arranging appropriate external supervisors and establishing a supportive supervisory environment at an agency level are recommended to facilitate the professional growth of social work practitioners.
