Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This study examines training needs of social work supervisors in different organizational settings. Social work supervisors in Israel in treatment-oriented and service-oriented agencies were asked to indicate the importance they attribute to each item of a list of related topics derived from the literature. The findings indicate that despite differences of setting, supervisors from the different settings share common training needs. Both groups attributed more importance to theory and skills in supervision and techniques of intervention than to administration issues. Low importance was assigned to computer skills and research. Implications for courses in supervision are discussed.
