Observing Interview Skills: a manual for users of the Jersey Supervision Interview Checklist


This manual is a product of the research on supervision skills and offender engagement
currently being carried out by Swansea University staff in collaboration with the Jersey
Probation and After-Care Service. This is one of a number of studies done by Swansea
researchers in the Channel Island of Jersey. Previous work has concerned risk/need
assessment and the effectiveness of supervision (see, for example, Raynor and Miles 2007),
and the present study grew out of a shared perception that developments in evidence-based
practice in England and Wales had not yet paid sufficient attention to the impact of skilled
one-to-one supervision. Would it be possible, we wondered, to carry out a systematic study of
the skills and methods used by probation staff in individual supervision?
