Supervision in social work is an activity that contributes to the continuing professional development of practitioners, helping them to improve the reflection on their own practice. Research aims to identify the particularities of the social construction of supervision of social services of public / private child protection institutions in the N -E area of Romania. As far as the professionalization of supervision is concerned, two broad directions coexist: the first and most widespread is the introduction of supervision in the professional body of social work, being an integral part of the profession, and the second direction leading to a specific professionalization, distinct of the supervisor, starting from initial training and experience in social assistance, to which, however, specific distinct training of a transdisciplinary bill must be added. There is a partial confusion between the supervisor’s functions and those of the manager, given by the overlap of roles. There were power disparities between the two, given the nature of the supervisor’s administrative role.
