This webinar examines the inner workings of the supervision session through the descriptions provided by supervisees and supervisors of their sessions. The aims are: 1) to explore the supervision session from both sides of the interaction; 2) to propose an interactional map of the supervision session; and 3) to provide supervisors with a practical checklist for the interactional process of the session.

The presenter is Dr Kieran O’Donoghue, PhD.

Dr O’Donoghue is the Head of the School of Health and Social Services  at Massey University. His PhD thesis was on the construction of social work supervision within Aotearoa New Zealand. His most recent published work includes the following:
