Difficult Discussions

This article offers behaviorally specific tips for both getting emotionally prepared for difficult discussions and for what to do in the discussion. The tip about what to do if you "misspeak" is a good example of how to turn an mistake into a strength. After providing supervision and instruction of MSW students and candidates for Licensure, I'd like to write an article for The New Social Worker on how to provide feedback that's low-anxiety and confidence-building.

Difficult but necessary conversations with field supervisors

I wish I would have seen this article several years ago, when I was in my last field placement in grad school. I would have saved myself a lot of heartache and tears.
