Effective Supervisory Practice: Building Competence in Programs Serving Children and Families Vols I and II

Effective Supervisory Practice: Building Competence in Programs Serving Children and Families Vols I and II This newly revised curriculum provides a comprehensive training for supervisors and other middle managers in child welfare organizations. Having well-trained supervisors can reduce an agency’s risk and improve its overall effectiveness. Using this program is an investment in one of an agency’s most valuable assets: its employees.

Effective Supervisory Practice has received acclaim from supervisors and middle managers from residential treatment centers, community-based human service organizations, child day care centers, and juvenile correctional facilities, among others.

This is a competency-based program using a dynamic “Action Plan” approach to help participants implement effective strategies. Participants learn through group discussion, experiential activities, and lively interactions.
The 36-hour curriculum includes an instructor’s manual, text for transparencies, and participant workbooks, and is presented in a highly adaptable modular format that covers the following topics:

Volume I
* The role of the middle manager
* Constructive confrontation
* Supervisory relationships
* Effective communication
* Structuring the supervisory session
* Team building
* Conducting effective meetings
* Stress management
* Time management

Volume II
* Recruiting
* Interviewing and hiring
* Orientation and training
* Personnel evaluation
* Progressive discipline
* Conflict management
* Change and crisis management

The set (Item 7855) includes Volume I (Item 9026), the Volume I Workbook (Item 9118), Volume II (Item 9033), and the Volume II Workbook (Item 9125).

The CWLA Walker Trieschman Center is available to adapt this curriculum to meet the specific training needs of your organization.

The Center can deliver Effective Supervisory Practice at your agency as a cost-effective alternative to sending staff out for training and can also offer training for trainers.
