is unit provides a framework for effective leadership and supervision - supervision in context, direct supervision, constructive feedback, dimensions of supervision, quality of the supervisory relationship and training for supervisors. On completion, participants should have a better understanding of helpful supervisory behaviours including giving direct feedback on work; linking theory, process and practice; encouraging joint problem-solving; offering feedback and reassurance; and providing role models. Participants will be required to investigate the role of leadership and supervision and the skills required by drawing on relevant empirical and theoretical work to offer practical and good supervision.
