This unique book clearly depicts a need for supervision in gerontological social work settings and provides a framework for approaching supervision. Grounded in two distinct bodies of literature, social work supervision and gerontological social work, this important book thoroughly examines present gerontological practice and principles and focuses on the stages and styles of helping, and teaching case workers to improve agency efficiency.Gerontological Social Work Supervision assumes some gerontological knowledge and experience with aging on the part of the supervisor, yet provides an abundance of informative and practical methods to aid agency success rates with their clients. The authors discuss the supervisory position as a positive asset in all aspects of case work and management. Throughout the chapters, the value of a supervisor is compounded, whether the supervisor is helping a worker in seeing a broader scope of the field of social work with the elderly, providing guidance through gray areas of ethics, or teaching practice skills for work with individuals, groups, or families, the need for an involved and prepared case worker supervisor becomes increasingly clear through the theories and scenarios presented. Extensive examples and helpful considerations make this an invaluable book for agency supervisors and workers. An entire chapter is devoted to providing supervision in the educational arena, promoting a greater awareness of gerontological social work in students preparing for the field. The appendices are packed with lists of additional works on supervision in social work, bibliographies of selected readings in case management, entitlement, long term care, and familycaregiving.
