Supervisory supervision

Supervision model I mainly use:

My favoured supervision model is Inskipp and Proctor’s normative, formative and restorative functions/processes – because it’s so simple and encompasses all the areas that I think are important:
• Formative/Educative is about developing the skills, understanding and abilities of the supervisee.
• Managerial / Normative provides the quality control of the work with clients and derives from the supervisor’s managerial and ethical responsibilities to ensure the client’s welfare.
• Supportive/Restorative is a way of responding to supervisees who have themselves become affected by the distress, pain and fragmentation of the clients.

During our work these aspects will all feature – but not always to the same degree, as we will tailor what we do and how we do it according to your personal needs, the priorities of the day and your clients.

Other models I am conversant with:

Page & Wosket Cyclical model
The seven-eyed model

Developmental and integrative models such as:
Novice, Apprentice, Journeyperson, Master craftsperson

the four stages of development:
Level 1: Self-centred
Level 2: Client-centred
Level 3: Process-centred
Level 4: Process-in-context-centred
