Concept of supervision
Supervision represents a specific method of training and enhancement of competence for professions and functions in which methodical acting in interactions between persons forms an important aspect of exercising the profession.
The central task of supervision is based on learning to reflect independently and of setting professional goals in realistic, concrete situations. Supervision as such spans different methodical approaches and professional fields. Its characteristic features and conditions are theoretically expressed.
