Summary/Abstract: The difficulties of working in the social work field, the unexpected situations which the professionals may face, the frequent ethical dilemmas, the emotional hardships request the need of supervision for the social workers in order to achieve a better performance. From a theoretical point of view, the supervision is a solution that can bring support, competence, education, information, orientation, which will provide a good development for the professional workflow. From a practical point of view, the laws, the employment mentality, the lack of financial resources and of specialized supervisors make this process become a luxury which only few have the chance to have it. Through this article, I tried to explain how big is the gap between the needs and the professional realities from the supervision perspective in social work.
