Diploma in Clinical Supervision

About The Diploma

Continuing supervision is now not only a professional requirement which safeguards both practitioner and client it is also essential for good practice.
This is a Four month course comprising of 12 teaching days which teaches supervision from an Integrative perspective. Perspectives covered are: Gestalt, Transactional Analysis, Person Centred Therapy, Transference and Countertransference and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. This eclectic approach enables participants to have some understanding of theoretical views other than their own and also helps those practitioners who are supervising people from other modalities than their own. In addition, there is one full day focused at looking at ethical issues, including the very present dynamic of increasing numbers of complaints within the profession.
There is a strong emphasis and training in understanding the importance of transferential and counter-transferential issues within the triad of the supervisory process – the supervisor, the supervisee and the client. Supervised supervision practice is an integral and core element of the course. This includes feedback from both tutors and peer members of the group.
