Supervising Child Protective Workers. The User Manual Series.
Ballew, Julius R.; And Others
Developed by the National Center on Child Abuse and Neglect, this manual provides Child Protective Service (CPS) supervisors with a conceptual framework for practice and offers specific practice-oriented advice on how to effectively carry out supervisory functions. The manual focuses on building a foundation for effective service delivery, the role of supervision in a CPS unit, skills and techniques for supervising CPS workers, and information and abilities needed to cope with special staff needs in a CPS environment. A self-checklist designed to help supervisors determine whether they are working effectively is appended, and a one-page bibliography is attached. (MP)
