Voices from the Field: Home Visitor and Supervisor 1

In this video clip, a home visitor participates in a role play about the challenge of a family not showing up for home visits. As the supervisor in the mock reflective supervision session, early childhood expert Rebecca Shahmoon-Shanok, LCSW, Ph.D provides feedback to the home visitor. In addition to the guidance in this particular scenario, the home visitor learns that she operates within the context of a team and must rely on them at times for advice and resources.
