Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This study examines the differences in organizational variables among field instructors holding positions on three organizational levels: direct workers, supervisors, and executives. Social work students from Canada and Israel reported their view of field instructors on self-administered questionnaires. The students of field instructors holding management positions perceived their field instructors as being more competent and less formal. Students of agency supervisors perceived their field instructor as concerned less with recording, and devoting less time to the instruction. These results are discussed in light of the unity of command model.
