An Anniversary Collection volume
In this volume the author clarifies the meaning and nature of supervision in social casework. Beginning with an examination of social casework itself, Virginia P. Robinson describes the basic: process which characterizes it, the process which supervision undertakes to teach. Supervision, according to the author, is the most original and characteristic process that the field of social casework has yet developed.
Virginia P. Robinson was Vice-Dean and Professor of Social Casework at the University of Pennsylvania School of Social Work.
