Thank you for the taking the initiative and starting a much needed Supervision Support Group. I thoroughly enjoyed my first session:
Networking with colleagues;
Sharing and providing guidance on ethical issues;
Assisting with interpretation of my area of expertise (The Children's Act);
Listening to the diverse Social work backgrounds and differences between those in Private Practise/in Government/Metro Municipality and owning a Company; and lastly
Enjoyed the discussions on best practises and challenges of starting your own business.
Looking forward to linking up again in the near future!
