Clinical Supervision is an extremely important component of effective and sound therapy practice. Delegates familiar with supervision in other psychotherapeutic modalities will discover that there are some the differences as well as the overlaps with CBT supervision. To explore this topic in greater details we designed a specific taught Diploma Module on CBT Supervision.
There you will learn how to apply supervision models to your own CBT practice and develop practical “supervisee skills” along with the confidence to use CBT supervision to its best effect.
Regarding actual supervision arrangements, students can EITHER receive supervision from a SDS supervisor OR are free to organise their own supervision with an Accredited CBT Therapist. Whichever route students wish to take is acceptable for completion of the Diploma.
All SDS supervisors are Accredited CBT Supervisors or Accredited CBT Therapists. SDS supervisors will see students on a minimum of an hour a month, although more frequent supervision is recommended of between two hours a month and two hours a fortnight during the period of practice.
Supervision is available via face-to-face room meeting, face-to-face Skype meeting, either individually or in group (according to availability). Telephone or email supervision is available in part, but there must be some direct personal contact on occasions as well.
