Noble, Carolyn (2016) Towards a critical social work supervision. In: Doing Critical Social Work: Transformative Practices for Social Justice. Pease, B, Goldingay, S, Hosken, N and Nipperess, S, eds. Arena Books, Crows Nest, NSW, pp. 39-51.


This chapter explores professional supervision informed by a critical analysis. Embedding a critical analysis within the practice of supervision has, I argue, the potential to be a site of resistance to the current oppressive neo-conservative climate and the devaluing of social work’s social justice and human rights discourse associated with its philosophy.
