The Importance of Reflective Supervision for Staff Working in Implementing Organisations

Dr. Nicki Dawson (Ububele Parent-Infant Programme Manager) and Esther Chunga (Ububele Clinical Director) published a paper on the importance of reflective supervision for staff working in implementing organisations in February. The paper, published in a special issue of the Journal of Psychological Services, provides a rationale for the importance of reflective spaces for community-based organisations. An overview of Ububele's supervision model is presented alongside a case example. The paper argues that the provision of supervision is an essential cost driver for ensuring responsible, quality, culturally-sensitive delivery of psychosocial support programmes, and should not be compromised on.
