Abstract

Behavioral health organizations use clinical supervision to ensure professional development and practice quality. This qualitative study examined 35 service coordinators’ perspectives on supervision in two distinct supportive housing program types (permanent and transitional). Thematic analysis of in-depth interviews yielded three contrast themes: support versus scrutiny, planned versus impromptu time, and housing first versus treatment first. Supervisory content and format resulted in differential perceptions of supervision, thereby influencing opportunities for learning. These findings suggest that unpacking discrete elements of supervision enactment in usual care settings can inform implementation of recovery-oriented practice.
