Sofie Franklin, Child Protection Social Worker, UK
"This book shows how reflection and critical analysis should be at the heart of good supervision and explains why this is not always achieved. More importantly, it goes on to inform readers on how to get the most out of supervision with examples of good practice. Personally, I have found the book to be most helpful as part of my own early professional development."
Gary Law, Children and Young People in Care Social Worker, Bury Local Authority, UK
"In this accessible and comprehensive book, Bill McKitterick brings his wealth of professional experience to bear, reinvigorating professional supervision in social work and reinstating its place at the heart of practice. This is a timely challenge to the tyranny of managerialism and process compliance in social work"
