The emphasis in the White Paper on Early Years provision, forensic CAMHS, IAPT in CAMHS suggests that there is a need to increase the provision of supervision. Child psychotherapists are often requested to offer supervision of one-to-one direct work to other child psychotherapists and CAMHS and other professionals. This course provides an opportunity to further develop supervisory skills and competencies.
The course aims to look at some of the literature on supervision and to use presentations given in turn by the participants to draw out some of the issues which arise in supervision.
A further aim is to develop a reflective, non-judgmental atmosphere in which to think about the meaning of the setting, the clinical material and to enable the clinician to feel supported in developing an understanding of their work and technical issues.
