Madigan, S., Racine, N., Cooke, J. E., & Korczak, D. J. (2020). COVID-19 and telemental health: Benefits, challenges, and future directions. Canadian Psychology/Psychologie Canadienne. Madigan and colleagues (2020) discuss telemedicine's use and its long-term implications for mental health service delivery. Specifically, they highlight unique considerations for clinicians, systems, and researchers for effective use of telemedicine after the global pandemic of 2020. As technologies in mental health will continue to expand, understanding key ethical and practical issues will be important for you as you move into managerial positions.

BMC Health Services Research, 20(1). Snowdon and colleagues (2019) discuss variables that improve the effectiveness of supervision. Given that supervision is common in mental health, it is important to ensure that resources used toward supervision are being properly allocated. Specifically, they highlight that supervisors need to be competent in the areas that they are supervising. More importantly, managers should be aware that supervision is most effective when the organization has created an environment that allows for supervisory relationships to properly develop properly and promotes an employee’s professional development.
Shi, Y., Xie, J., Zhou, Z. E., Tang, H., Ma, H., Zhang, H., & Zhang, N. (2020). Family-supportive supervisor behaviors and employees’ life satisfaction: The roles of work-self facilitation and generational differences. International Journal of Stress Management, 27(3), 262–272. Shi and colleagues (2020) highlight the impact supervisors have on their employees' overall life satisfaction. Their results indicate two important factors that you should consider as you move into a management position. First, your behavior does impact their overall work and life satisfaction and determining how to best respond to employees is a fundamental aspect of being an effective manager. Second, there may be differences between generations, so appreciating cultural differences between employees is an important skill to acquire as a manager.
