When we hear the term “evidence-based practice” we often think of direct clinical interventions, yet any service we conduct as social service professionals should be backed by science - including supervision. In this workshop we will explore the research on supervision and identify ways to apply the evidence to all types of social service supervision – including methods of supervision, components of supervision, and impacts of supervision on the client and agency.


  • Identify evidence-based benefits of effective supervision for workers, clients, and the social service professions
  • Recognize elements and types of supervision supported by the research
  • Discuss the role of cultural competence in effective supervision
  • Identify reputable educational resources available to supervisors
  • Recognize the role of being a licensure gatekeeper in supervision
