Department of Human Services Field Supervisors
Effective Use of Supervision
The student’s relationship with the field supervisor is central to the learning experience. To make effective use of supervision time and experience, the Department of Human Services at MSU Denver encourages students to be active participants in the process. Supervision meetings offer an opportunity to clarify policies and procedures, give feedback on performance, and provide guidance relating to specific situations and clients. It also offers a time to plan for activities and projects. Field supervisors are encouraged to ask students to prepare for supervision meetings. Field supervisors are welcome to give students specific reading to discuss at the meetings.
