Effective Supervisory Practice: Building Competence in Programs Serving Children and Families Vol I 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 18-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
