The relationship of supervision is an evaluative, long-term one, oriented towards a series of goals: improving the professional activity of the supervised persons; monitoring the quality of services provided by practitioners and promoting professional practice in general. From the point of view of the supervisor’s membership in the organization, we are talking about internal supervision – in which the supervisor is a member of the organization, often also a member of the management team – and external supervision, the supervisor not being a member of the organization’s team, it‘s relationship with the organization usually being temporary. The purpose of the research is the analysis of the main axes of the social construction of supervision of social services in public Child Protection institutions in the N-E area of Romania. Supervision is focused on solutions, aims to identify the problems faced by the social worker on a case, and diagnose social problems, the supervision process being focused on, when problems arise in solving the client’s case, the causes that determined these problems and identifying optimal solutions. Professional supervision in social work is a very important activity for both professionals and beneficiaries, and the organization providing social assistance services, because through supervision are simultaneously pursued the professional development of social workers, quality of social services, respect for the interests of beneficiaries and the ethics of social practice. The supervisor can be considered a key person in the organization, because he is a node of organizational communication, at the intersection between the interests of the beneficiaries, the social service provider and the social work case manager. Trust is a key element of the resulting supervision model for the N-E region of Romania that is consistent and convergent with the values of the social worker and the international practice of the supervisor in social work.
