Victoria now provides supervision for clinical social worker interns. According to the NASW Clinical Social Worker Practice Update (2003) "The purpose of supervision is to enhance the clinical social worker's professional skills, knowledge and attitudes in order to achieve competency in providing quality patient care. It aids in professional growth and development and improves clinical outcomes". Victoria provides both educational and supportive supervision. Educational supervision "establishes a learninag alliance between the supervisor and supervisee in which the supervisee learns therapeutic skills while developing self-awareness at the same time. It is also concerned with teaching the knowledge, skills, and attitudes important to clinical tasks by analyzing the social worker's interaction with the patient. The supervisor teaches the social worker what he or she needs to know to provide specific services to specific patients." "Supportive supervision is concerned with increasing job performance by decreasing job related stress that interferes with work performance." Supervision occurrs once a week at a rate of $80/hour. Sliding scale is available.
