Group Supervision


I am looking for some good materials to use to develop a training day for some managers who are moving to a 'group supervision' set up for some of their staff. I want to provide information on the different type of facilitation skills required in carrying out group as opposed to
1-1 supervision and also, to give a clear message that group supervision is NOT the same thing as a Team Meeting.
Anyone know of any good (up-to-date/current) training materials available on the market re this area?
Thanks in advance for your assistance witht this.

  1. Are you referring to clinical supervision in groups?
    If by supervision you mean clinical supervision then I have developed training materials and run workshops which cover both one-to-one and group clinical supervision.

  2. Thanks!
    Thanks for that info Buffy!

    Eddie the work area for this group supervision is Social Services would the materials you are referring to suit this type of session?

    Hi Ann

    My professional background is in nursing. I have had social care staff attend my clinical supervisee training (half a day) but so far they haven’t attended the training for clinical supervisors (2 days for those who are new or have limited experience and no previous training). I have planned a one-day update for clinical supervisors who are experienced in supervision and who have had previous training as supervisors. Attendees for clinical supervisor training so far are all health care professionals from local NHS trusts, including nurses, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, dieticians, psychologists, counsellors etcetera.

    There is very little commercial training material, the only one I can recommend considering is Clinical Supervision: A Development Pack for Nurses (1998) The Open University. I don’t know of any training material written by social workers specifically for social worker training.

    There are some training materials here:
