How David beats Goliath I remember this article. It is about high school girls basketball. I think lots of youth sports balances sub-optimal playing with actually playing something resembling the sport.

Every discipline should find these competencies useful, as they are expansive and comprehensive — and very enlightening.
Supervisors will find it useful to self-assess on each document used with supervisees as the presumption is that supervisors will be at least as competent — and hopefully more so — as the supervisees they oversee.

Following are two helpful articles that it is recommended for supervisors to read. You will find these in the reference section of this course: An article explaining the development of core competencies, by Nelson, T. Summary Remember that self-assessment is a core value of supervision.
There is a growing international movement to have individual practitioners self-assess to identify areas in which continuing education would enhance competency. Remember that continuing education is actually a means of ensuring ongoing professional competency.
Each supervisor should download a copy of the respective documents for the disciplines she supervises as well as the respective codes of ethics for those disciplines.
Direct Observation in the Assessment of Competence The American Psychological Association now requires each supervisee in practicum, internship, and post-doctoral fellowship to undergo direct observation by a supervisor during each training period.
This author strongly advocates direct observation for ALL supervisees at least once during each training term or rotation. Interprofessional Supervision Increasingly, supervisors are conducting interprofessional supervision, supervising individuals who are from different disciplines with varying scopes of practice.
These might include social work, marriage and family therapy, psychology, psychiatry, alcohol and drug treatment counseling, and other mental health and health professions. Complexity arises when the supervisor is from a different discipline and views the clinical work through a different lens.

Theory-based Models Among the approaches to supervision are psychotherapy-based approaches; including psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, intersubjective or narrative, and dialectical behavioral therapies; and systemic and family systems.
In these models, supervision typically mirrors the therapy process reflected in the theoretical orientation.
A concern with such supervision is that it may not systematically address all the areas critical for supervision e.Drug administration is one of the highest risk areas of nursing practice and a matter of considerable concern for both managers and practitioners (Gladstone ).
