Melody of being a social work supervisor：stories of a female mid-level executive
Social work supervioir
Female mid-level executive
As a supervior, it is a new path to self-exploring. In the beginning, I have never expected to be a social work supervioir someday; however, it have been through many obstacles, undertake an arduous journey as well as with joy from long experience. With this “Melody” to express the stories of social work supervisor journey that guide to understand its experience of suffering, difficulty and obstacle which under the supervision process; all of broken, recovery and transferred that brought people stronger than ever. Through self-observation from long experience to mold my own supervision style and characteristic that brings a brand new me; it was acceptable and appreciated this change which also stimulate me to commit myself into social work field. Supervisors must have good stability so that they can deal with all kinds of accidental difficulties and challenges easily. Especially as women, because of gender-inequity issues, such as the inequality to access training, unequal opportunities of promotion, and questioning the ability of female executives, a female mid-level executive like me needs to have more capacity to identify and deal with issues of personal. She must be sensitive to not only gender issues, but also the government policy, as well as the direction of her organization; therefore, she can understand how she has been affected in her working ecosystem, and then can properly apply leadership and the function of management role to assist social workers in recognizing the real context behind their personal issues. Helping them become efficient and professional helpers who can provide with prompt services even when they find themselves are struggling with complex transference and counter-transference. However, in addition to that supervisors need to continue to practice their professional skills, strengthen the ability of supervision, build up the knowledge of social work supervision and management, and comply with the ethics in supervision, their organizations must also invest relatively enough amount of supports and resources – such as providing professional training, offering opportunities for knowledge and skills learning, and creating a suitable working environment where supervisors can stay and develop themselves comfortably. I hope through my own stories, not only providing valuable reference and advice to partners who is preparing a path of becoming a supervisor, but also being the nourishment to make them willing to learn, to grow and to expand with me. Eventually, we fight together as important partners in the field of Social Work. Let’s compose our own melody of being a social work supervisor!
