Supervision and the Psychology of Supervision and the Multi-Modality Drug Abuse Treatment Program Using the Team Approach

  • Emizie Abbott


All leaders in an organization, from chief executive officer to the first line supervisor, perform such functions as planning and organizing, communicating orders and instructions, motivating and controlling the performance of subordinates, resolving conflicts between individuals and groups, settling grievances, and taking disciplinary action. These functions, however, may be performed in a variety of ways, depending upon the nature of the organization, the level of the leader’s position and his specific job requirement. For example, a supervisor in a treatment program will have different conditions under which to perform than one in a hospital. Similarly, the supervisor of a group of college graduates will be required to use an approach that is different from what would be used in supervising a group with minimal formal education.
