The paper is based on an implicit assumption that supervision is carried out in rural areas without taking into consideration the best practices available in scientific literature. Given this situation, we intend to keep an implicit epistemic distance to that assumption. Research was conducted through a constructive Grounded Theory methodology using structured and directive interviews as the main technique. Responses are generally in agreement with the theory, showing a good knowledge of the functions of supervision. We believe that low professional prestige of social workers in rural community adversely interfere with the quality of their work.
