Clinical Supervision training

Providing Good Clinical Supervision.

Providing Good Clinical Supervision is a clinical supervision training course from the Association for Psychological Therapies. It is a 2-day course where day one covers one:one supervision and day two covers group supervision. You can come to us to attend as an individual, or we can bring the training to your own organisation and train a group of 6-15 people for a fixed, all-inclusive fee. You can attend or commission the two-day course, or just one of the days (individual or group).

It is the only supervision training that is APT-accredited and also gives you access to APT’s relevant downloadable resources for use post-course.

Executive Summary:

Clinical supervision is a key concept that many people are unclear about. Unclear whether 'supervision' means that you should be ensuring that the supervisee is 'doing it right' or whether you should be providing a sounding board for the supervisee to develop their clinical thinking, or what. And many people are equally unsure about exactly what their professional body has to say about it, and where to find that out.

This course is designed to clear up all of the above by looking at what the professional bodies say about supervision, how to establish a competent supervision contract, and how to deliver on that contract. The aim is, therefore, that by the end of the course you will both (a) know about clinical supervision and (b) be good at providing it.

Option 3: 'Train the Trainer':

If you or a colleague are a senior professional (e.g. consultant psychologist) and have a talent for communication and teaching, then you are welcome to apply to become an APT-accredited tutor. You could then tutor the course - or your chosen modules from it - in your own organisation, under license.

This is not only a highly appropriate use of senior professionals, but it also saves your organisation the tutor-component of the fee (around 50%) each time you run it or your chosen modules.
