Psychosocial Supervision Guide

Supervision is a key factor in MHPSS programs to ensure quality of interventions, monitor program design and management, promote self-knowledge, encourage the learning process and explore personal problems. This guide addresses practical types and tools for supervising psychosocial workers. Examples of these types of supervision include: clinical supervision during counselling sessions, individual case discussion, Intervision and clinical team supervision, monitoring of the program within the team, individual supervision of the job performance, and assessment of emotional needs in the team.
Different methodologies can be used during supervision e.g clinical observation, case discussion, role plays, psychodrama and sociodrama, review of clinical files and diagnosis, set up and review of inclusion criteria and patients’ flowchart, and intervention’s objectives and strategies discussion.
The guide also provides recommendations for role plays, psychodrama and case discussions, checklist to evaluate the psychosocial interviewing skills, and evaluation of the basic counselling skills.
