A Social Work supervisor is meeting with Tasha, a staff therapist at a mental health center. Tasha has some family problems and is telling her supervisor about a recent personal crisis. Tasha often brings up personal matters in supervision, and seems comforted by the attention. Her supervisor is conflicted about this use of time. The SW supervisor should:
A. Determine the agenda for all future meetings, and discourage discussion of personal issues during that time.
B. Offer to meet with Tasha outside of their scheduled supervision time to try to support her.
C. Discuss with Tasha possible resources for her to get help with her problems, while preserving their time for work issues.
D. Try to personally assist Tasha as much as possible so that her work doesn’t suffer as a result of her problems.
Explanation: Supervision is a precious resource to both parties and must be carefully protected and preserved.
