Abstract: The implementation of the Strengths Model of Case Management (Rapp & Goscha, 2006) at St.Vincent’s Mental Health (Melbourne) in September 2006 incorporates a model of team supervision that provides support and affirmation, generates and shares ideas and learning for clinicians. Just as the strengths case management focuses on goals and strengths rather than deficits, so the supervision sessions focus on recognizing clinician effort, ingenuity and accomplishments. As a result of this structured approach to supervision, clinicians are more hopeful in their work and are developing skills to empower their clients to maximize recovery.
