Supervisor Resources:

Supervisor Training Transfer Indicators (TTIs):

There is a set of fundamental supervision and management knowledge and skills needed in order to be an effective supervisor. Whether on the job for two months or several years, these concepts should be regularly reviewed by a supervisor and their manager in order to achieve a high level of supervision.

How to use Training Transfer Indicator’s (TTI’s): For new supervisors, following a Supervisor Core module, use the TTI’s to assess the supervisor’s learning and application. Review the TTI’s during supervision to reinforce concepts learned during Core and apply them to every day practice. For seasoned supervisors, use the TTI’s as a conversation guide to revisit fundamental supervision and management knowledge and skills.

Under the description list the links to the Word and PDF versions of the TTI (put the TTIs in this order)

Learning Lab

511-SC1-LLS: Casework Supervision Learning Lab (6 hours)

This learning lab is designed to help participants practice applying critical thinking skills to various casework practice issues and dilemmas. The main part of the lab involves viewing a DVD entitled, Failure to Protect: The Taking of Logan Marr.   This DVD has three parts: Part One tells the tragic story of a 5-year-old girl whose death in foster care promoted the state of Maine to reexamine its child welfare policies. Part Two follows caseworkers in Bangor, Maine as they struggle to make decisions that child welfare professionals face daily. Part Three brings together national experts gathered in a town meeting to confront a hypothetical child welfare case and to explore how they would make difficult decisions. The viewing of the DVD will be interspersed with dialog and guided discussions to help participants practice critical decision-making skills as they apply to casework supervision.

While this learning is part of the Supervisor Core series, it is designed for participation by both new and seasoned supervisors. The focus is on critical thinking and decision making wiht an emphasis on supervising effective home visits. You can register for an attend the learning lab in the Core series, or you can contact your RTC to request that the learning lab be offered independently in your area.
