Diploma in supervision
This very popular supervision diploma course is now in its 13th year. We have trained a wide range of therapists across a range of modalities to facilitate professionals in supervisory relationships. This course is for those who want to enhance their practice by adding supervision to their portfolio, and supervising students and qualified professionals both from their own modality and across other modalities.
This course is for those who already have significant experience working as a practitioner within their field and want to further their career and qualify as a supervisor. The course is for participants from different approaches to learn how to supervise both within their own theory and across other theoretical modalities. There will be an opportunity to learn different theoretical ideas about supervision, as well as to practice application with support and feedback from tutors and peers. This course is for those who want to learn and develop within a stimulating environment with peers and tutors who have many years of expertise in working as supervisors and trainers.
A range of topics will be on offer including the supervisory relationship, working ethically, differing models of supervision, philosophy of supervision, responsibility, and others. For those that want to, this course will help to prepare you to apply to BACP accreditation as a supervisor.
