We are seeking articles for a special issue on supervision across the career, from supervision of students, newly-qualified practitioners, experienced staff, and the often-neglected supervision of supervisors and managers.
Questions of interest to the editors include:
- What is the role of supervisors in maintaining a focus on human rights and social justice in social work?
- What is the role of supervisors in advocacy for safer working conditions for direct service practitioners?
- What can research tell us about how supervision can improve outcomes for service users?
- What support do first-line supervisors need in order to provide effective support for direct service practitioners?
- Does one size fit all in supervision, do we need multiple practice models?
- What might the future hold for supervision? Where to next?
We will consider submissions in three formats: full articles of 7000 words, research briefs, 3000 words, and shorter viewpoints or practice reflections of 2000 words. All articles are peer reviewed.
Abstract submission – please submit a 150-200-word proposal outlining your topic, method (theoretical, quantitative, qualitative or mixed method), findings and conclusions.
Send abstract to email@example.com by 1 February 2019
