CE Webinar: The 5L's of Social Work Supervision: A Holistic, Ethical Model

Although the NASW Code of Ethics describes ethical standards for social work supervision, all supervision is not created or delivered equal.

Social work supervision is an integral component of a social worker's professional grounding and development- both as a supervisor and supervisee. In this workshop we will get clear on the purpose and possibilities of social work supervision through an examination of NASW standards and a 5-component model developed by the instructor over the course of her 20-year career.
