dc.description.abstract This study quantitatively explores issues in a mandated child welfare setting using the formative evaluation method with respect to three issues: the frequency and nature of day-to-day supervision within the selected setting; the extent to which supervisory personnel are involved in the decision making at critical points in the management of abuse and neglect cases, protection cases, and children in care cases; and the extent to which administrative, educational and supportive supervision are incorporated into the day-to-day supervision program within the selected setting. In this Agency, supervision was provided on a planned as well as unplanned basis. Statistically significant differences in perceptions of supervisors and social workers were found in relation to the perceived usefulness of unplanned supervision as it relates to enhancing the ability of supervisors and social workers to effectively carry out the responsibilities of their roles. Statistically significant differences in perceptions of supervisors and social workers were not found in relation to the perceived usefulness of planned supervision as it relates to enhancing the ability of supervisors and social workers to effectively carry out the responsibilities of their respective roles. Supervisory involvement in decision making at critical points in the management of abuse and neglect cases, protection cases and children in care cases was found to occur to varying degrees. This study found that administrative, educational and supportive supervision were incorporated into the day-to-day supervision program. Administrative supervision was found to be provided to a greater extent than either educational or supportive supervision. Supportive supervision was found to be provided to a greater extent than educational supervision. (Abstract shortened by UMI.) en_US
