Reflective supervision is promoted in social work as a way to support social workers to think critically about their work. One way to do this is to imagine the perspectives of the child and their parents, but how is this managed in practice? In this presentation, we consider occasions when supervisors ask about the perspectives of family members and show how the efforts to do reflective supervision can be undermined by concerns about professional accountability.
