An in-person supervision group in discussion.

The space between: reflexive systemic supervision (CPD41)

An in-person group supervision space for the post-intermediate systemic practitioner

This new training provides a monthly, reflective supervision space for post-intermediate systemic practitioners to improve their knowledge and skills in systemic practice within the workplace and beyond. You might be looking for some extra support in your role or looking to enhance your knowledge ahead of embarking on further systemic training.

Delivered in-person at the Tavistock Centre in London over ten months by a senior systemic psychotherapist and AFT-accredited supervisor, the training provides an opportunity to reflect on clinical cases, both yours and your peers, within a supportive, multidisciplinary group setting. You will be encouraged to examine the ‘space between’ by engaging in self and relational reflexivity — reflecting on the relationship between yourself, the client(s), the system and contexts. After completing the supervision series, you will be more confident in your systemic skills and embedding them into your practice with individuals, couples and families.

Aims and learning objectives

This supervision series will provide an opportunity to:

  • present your own work, contribute ideas, share reflections with peers and learn from others
  • analyse and problem solve specific issues, challenges, or concerns from your setting with a supportive group
  • enhance your systemic clinical skills as part of your ongoing professional development
  • develop the art of systemic formulation and embed the idea of the space between
  • embed new learning into your practice and provide improved care to the people that you support

Who is this course for?

This course is suitable for anyone who has completed a systemic intermediate level training and is wanting to continue their learning through a systemic group supervision. You might be looking for some extra support in your current role or wishing to continue your professional development journey in systemic practice.

You might be working in social care, child and adolescent mental health services (CAMHS) adult mental health, education, perinatal care, family support services, youth work, or in a hospital or voluntary setting.
